Pomegranate Sorbet

I have some pomegranates (wow they are really cheap right now). I have an ice cream machine. I have looked through the master sorbet topic, but no one seems to be making pomegranate sorbet: any suggestions of where to begin in terms of ratios? Should I juice the pomegranates, or puree them?

Juice or puree, but if you puree, make sure to strain out any bitter stuff that might be left.

I'd use the pretty classic ratio of 2 c. liquid to 1 c. sugar. Pinch of salt. Tablespoon or two of lemon juice. Tablespoon or 2 of applejack. Taste. Refrigerate. Freeze. Call it a Jack Rose sorbet.

Don't puree it will turn foggy pepto-bismal color. Pulse it in robotcoupe at let it sit in a china cap or cheesecloth like tomato water. Because it has no solids just juice its going to have weak texture even with a good sorbet syrup. I would thicken a portion of it with pectin NH then combine with the juice and your sorbet syrup and season.
