Recipe Ingredients:

1 tablespoon unflavored gelatin
1 cup granulated sugar
3 large eggs, separated
3/4 cup water
1 cup pomegranate juice
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 cup whipping cream

Whipped cream
Chopped pistachio nuts
Pomegranate seeds

Cooking Directions:

  1. Mix gelatin and sugar in a heavy saucepan; reserve.
  2. Whisk egg yolks and water together; stir into gelatin mixture. Cook over medium-low heat (do not boil), stirring constantly until gelatin and sugar dissolve, about 5 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat; stir in pomegranate and lemon juice. Refrigerate pomegranate mixture stirring occasionally, until mixture mounds slightly when dropped from a spoon, about 2 1/2 hours.
  4. When pomegranate mixture is ready, beat egg whites until stiff, but not dry; thoroughly fold into pomegranate mixture. Reserve.
  5. Beat cream until soft peaks form; carefully fold into pomegranate mixture.
  6. Divide mixture among 6 (8-ounce) parfait glasses; chill at least 4 hours.
  7. To serve garnish each parfait with a dollop of whipped cream; sprinkle with chopped nuts and pomegranate seeds.

Makes 6 servings.
