We have produced an excellent vinegar from Moroccan pomegranates. Try it!
Pomegranates are rich in secondary plant compounds, antioxidants and anti-inflammatory phenols. These ingredients are much more concentrated in pomegranates than in red wine, green tea, blueberries and grape juice. Vitamins C and E enhance the antioxidant effect. Calcium and magnesium strengthen the bones. Calcium also contributes to deacidification and magnesium serves as an anti-stress agent.
Potassium is indispensable for the function of the heart, muscles and nerves, iron for the formation of red blood cells. The pomegranate contains plant oestrogens, which is already indicated by the signature: The fruit is reminiscent of an ovary, filled with eggs.
The exotic-fruity vinegar is ideal for oriental and Mediterranean salads, bulgur salad, beetroot salad and green leaf salads such as rocket and lamb's lettuce as well as vegetables. Suitable companions for the salad dressing are argan, walnut, hazelnut, pumpkin seed, roasted sesame, grape seed and mild olive oils.
Desserts such as fruit salad, panna cotta and vanilla ice cream as well as muesli and yoghurt can also be refined with pomegranate vinegar. The fruity vinegar with its refreshing acidity also harmoniously rounds off North African dishes such as couscous, game dishes and cheese.
The vinegar is produced according to ecological principles from the best natural products in Morocco.
