Pomegranate and Cranberry Reduction
8 oz of Pom Wonderful Pomegranate Juice
1 1/2 teaspoons honey
1 tablespoon Dairy Free Butter (I used Earth Balance dairy/soy free spread)
1/2 cup dried cherry flavored cranberries
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
2 teaspoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons COLD water
Whisk pomegranate juice and honey together in small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to boil, and add basil and cranberries. Turn heat down to low, and simmer for about 15 to 20 minutes until reduced. Add butter, stirring until butter melts. Mix cornstarch and water in separate glass until smooth. Slowly whisk into reduction until you reach desired thickness. Simmer about three minutes. Pour over turkey cutlets and serve!
