Tasty (Kitchen) Tennis… POM…

August 30th, 2010

When POM asked it they could send me a case of pomegranate juice, I was excited… of course, I’ll take a case of POM… they sent me the pomegranate-blueberry variety, which was delicious (and, unfortunately, I lost most of it when we lost power for a week, but that is another story).

Aaron and I decided to use this as an opportunity to use pomegranate juice for Tasty (Kitchen) Tennis… I’ve already shared the Cumin Turkey Breast with Pomegranate Sauce. Now, I give you pomegranate truffles (yummy!). This round was more of a group effort… due to some really creative ideas that just failed in execution… so Top Chef of us…

Pomegranate Chocolate Truffles
(adapted from Tartine)

1/2 pound dark chocolate chocolate, chopped
1/3 cup heavy cream
2.5 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons pomegranate juice, warmed
1/2 cup dried pomegranate seeds
Cocoa powder or powered sugar (for rolling)

1. Heat the heavy cream in a sauce pan until it begins to bubble.
2. Pour over the chocolate and stir until melted.
3. Mix in the butter until melted.
4. Stir in the pomegranate juice and seeds.
5. Set in the fridge for at least an hour to become solid.
6. With a spoon or melonballer, spoon out about a tablespoon of the ganache and roll it into a ball. Roll in the chocolate cocoa powder or powered sugar.

Disclaimer: POM sent me a case of pomegranate-blueberry juice that was used in this dish.
