Pomegranate Paste

4 cups fresh pomegranate juice

1 tsp. fresh lime juice to taste (if juice is sweet; you are aiming for sour)

1 tsp. salt

In a heavy four-quart saucepan combine the juices and bring to a boil over high heat.  Reduce the heat to medium-high add the salt, and let simmer uncovered, stirring occasionally, until thickened, about one hour.  Remove pan from heat.  Store in a glass jar in the refrigerator.  Makes about half a cup.

This is often combined with walnuts.
