1 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds (about 1 pound)
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup water
Combine ingredients in food processor and process briefly to break up seeds. (The mixture does not need to be smooth.) Transfer to a jar or sealed container and place in a cool, dark place for 3 days. Do not refrigerate.
After 3 days, strain the mixture through a sieve, allowing the liquid to drip through. The process can take about 30 minutes.
Transfer to a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over low heat. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature before using.
Store in the refrigerator for up to 6 months.
Makes about 2 cups.
