This versatile pomegranate ginger sauce recipe makes an excellent addition to roasted poultry and grilled seafood dishes. Spicy ginger, tannic pomegranate juice, and a touch of acidic apple cider vinegar combine to make this spicy sauce out of pantry staples within minutes, a must for entertaining last-minute guests.


  • 2 cups pomegranate juice

  • 1/4 cup sugar

  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon finely chopped ginger

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 2 heaping tablespoons pomegranate seeds, optional

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Bring the pomegranate juice, sugar, apple cider vinegar, ginger, and black pepper to a boil. Reduce the heat slightly and allow it to simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes, until the pomegranate ginger sauce has reduced in volume by two-thirds.

  3. Stir the pomegranate seeds into the sauce, if desired, and serve it warm.
