The pomegranate symbolizes the fertility of the goddess and is representative of Persephone, daughter of Demeter. This delicious sorbet is easy to make, and can be prepared as part of ritual or in advance.

You can either squeeze the fruit juices yourself, or buy them commercially prepared. While you prepare this sorbet, give thanks to the Dark Mother for the blessings of the harvest and the changing of the seasons.

Ingredients:

  • 2 C. pomegranate juice
  • 1/3 C. orange juice
  • 1/3 C. cranberry juice
  • 1/2 Tsp. lemon juice
  • 1/3 C. sugar
  • 1 orange
  • Mint leaves
  • Fresh pomegranate seeds

Directions:

Blend all the juices and the sugar in an airtight container.

Cover the container, and then freeze for four hours.

When the mixture has frozen solid, use a spoon to break it up into small chunks (not smooth).

Re-freeze for a few more hours.

To serve, scoop the frozen sorbet into cups or glasses, and garnes with slices of orange, mint leaves, and the extra pomegranate seeds.
