  1. Combine the pomegranate juice, wine, and lemon juice in a bowl. Whisk in the cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ginger. Crumble in half of the brown sugar and whisk mixture until sugar dissolves.
  2. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat and swirl to coat the pan. Immediately pour in the juice/spice mixture and increase the heat to high. Bring mixture to a boil while whisking to prevent scorching. Reduce heat to medium and, while stirring, add the remaining brown sugar a little at a time. Cook and stir until mixture thickens to a syrupy consistency or when it can coat the back of a spoon.
  3. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly and continue to cool, 5 to 10 minutes. Stir and serve.


  • For baked fruit, you can make a marinade from the pomegranate and lemon juices, wine and the spices. Remove the fruit from the marinade and bake according to your recipe. Save the marinade to make the syrup to pour over the fruit when it comes out of the oven.
