Pomegranates are my new favorite miracle food. They're rich in antioxidants and are incredibly tasty as well... they're one of my favorite fall treats! If you've never tried one, you really should — but how, you may ask, to prepare it? Here are 9 delicious recipes using pomegranates...

1. Roasted Pork Shoulder with Pomegranate Sauce

Pork shoulders are relatively inexpensive, and yet, with this recipe, you can still impress the guests with a lovely meal! (They'll never know how cheap you went!)

1 (3 pound) bone-in pork shoulder roast

2 teaspoons minced garlic

kosher salt and ground black pepper to taste

2 pomegranates with the seeds removed

1/2 cup water

2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

2 tablespoons sugar

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Season the pork roast with garlic, kosher salt and pepper. Place in a roasting pan.

Pour the juice from the pomegranate into a saucepan and bring to a boil. Simmer over medium heat until reduced by half. Remove from the heat and mix in the balsamic vinegar, sugar and cinnamon.

After the roast has been in the oven for 1 hour, start to baste it with the pomegranate sauce, using a brush to apply to the top and sides. Continue to roast the pork until the internal temperature has reached 180 degrees F (80 degrees C). Remove from the oven and allow to rest for 20 minutes before carving and serving.
