Pomegranate Vinegar

A few months ago I bought a little bottle of pomegranate vinegar at Trader Joes on a whim and have been using it primarily in dressings and with fruit. It's beautiful - a deep rose color and intensely flavored, sweet, floral... there's a lot to love. Last night I used some to deglaze some seared duck.

This vinegar is just amazing but I need some new ideas. Anyone ??

That duck looks fantastic, and the vinegar sounds delicious. Would it be good to drink in some lemonade or seltzer?

Beautiful photo, Janet

I've made this recipe before and it's wonderful. I bet it would be good with your pomegranate vinegar, too: http://www.foodandwine.com/recipes/l...-vinegar-sauce

Ohhh - that's a great idea. It also might be good in some snazzy cocktail....

Hmm, you could replace grenadine (pomegranate syrup), like in a Tequila Sunrise or a Pink Lady. I may need to get me some pomegranate vinegar!

That looks like a good idea - this vinegar is soo yummy I have to shamefully admit that I felt a little cheated with the duck (vegetarian here), missing out on the flavor. I've been toying with the idea of adding some to chocolate truffles but don;t quite have the nerve...

I think it would be great with chocolate truffles! A friend of mine makes gourmet chocolates with all kinds of yummy infusions.

Another idea is to use it in a salsa - maybe with onions, jalapeño and red peppers - and serve it over fish or portobello mushrooms.

I generally make truffles with heavy cream and chocolate. Anyone know if the vinegar would react badly with the cream?

Great ideas. Great pic Janet. The duck looks really yummy.

Some friends gave me a bottle of pomegranate balsamic vinegar. I haven't opened it yet because it seems special and I had no idea what would be a good way to benefit from it's uniqueness.

I don't have any ideas about using the pomegranate vinegar Janet, but that duck sure does look yummy! I think I would like it in a fruit salad too, as you mentioned.
