Berries with Homemade Pomegranate SyrupFresh blueberries and dried cranberries make this delicious dessert an antioxidant powerhouse. We use dried cranberries, as their relatively mellow flavor pairs perfectly with the blueberries. Look for the ones without added sugar for an exceptionally healthy treat. Our homemade pomegranate syrup is delicious over berries but amazing drizzled over your favorite morning pancakes, waffles, or French toast.
