Juice from 4-6 large POM Wonderful Pomegranates to make 1 cup POM Syrup* or 2 cups POM Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice
1 cup arils from 1 large POM Wonderful Pomegranate or POM fresh pomegranate arils
1 1/4 cups heavy whipping cream

Few drops of red food coloring (optional)

Score 1 fresh pomegranate and place in a bowl of water. Break open the pomegranate underwater to free the arils (seed sacs). The arils will sink to the bottom of the bowl and the membrane will float to the top. Sieve and put the arils in a separate bowl. In a bowl stir together cream, half-and-half, 3/4 cup of POM Syrup* and salt. Stir in food coloring to tint ice cream pink, if desired. Pour into can of ice cream maker.** Process ice cream according to manufacturers directions. Meanwhile, place a large bowl in the freezer. Transfer ice cream to the chilled bowl; stir in pistachios and reserved arils. Transfer ice cream to a freezer container, leaving 1/2 inch airspace at the top for expansion; cover tightly. Freeze at least 2-4 hours. At serving time, drizzle each serving with some of the remaining POM Syrup. Serve this pomegranate recipe.
