Health JANUARY 2014

  • Yield: Serves: 8


  • 1/2 cup dried cherries
  • 1 pound strawberries, hulled and quartered (halved if small)
  • 1 cup red grapes, halved
  • 2 blood or navel oranges, depending on season
  • Finely grated zest and juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1 tablespoon strawberry jam
  • 1/3 cup pomegranate seeds (arils), from 1 pomegranate


1. In a small heatproof bowl, cover cherries with boiling water. Let sit for 15 minutes; drain, reserving liquid.

2. Add berries and grapes to bowl with cherries.

3. Over a bowl, use a paring knife to remove skin and pith from oranges. Slice alongside membranes of each segment, releasing segments. Squeeze juice from membranes. Transfer segments to bowl with cherries; reserve juice.

4. In a small pan, combine reserved liquid from cherries, reserved orange juice and lime zest and juice. Add jam. Boil until reduced by half, about 3 minutes. Let cool completely at room temperature.

5. Before serving, drizzle sauce over fruit and top with pomegranate arils.
