Whole Wheat Pancakes with Pomegranate Syrup

Whole Wheat Pancakes with Pomegranate Syrup

Standing in front of my pantry this morning, feeling a wee hung over, trying to decide what to have for breakfast, I spied the bottle of pomegranate syrup sitting forlornly in the back next to the bag of whole wheat flour. I’d bought the syrup on a whim a year ago in an organic market and it had been sitting unused since then. I spied a good opportunity to use it today. This recipe makes approximately 12 2-3" pancakes that serve as a great remedy after a night out with the boys and too much vodka.

I’ve been trying to make my own condiments lately after reasoning I can spend 69 cents on dry ingredients and get what I would normally pay $3 for. Mustard was one of my first forays into this thinking. Granted the volumes needed to purchase everything came to a few bucks but what actually ended up in the final product was less than a dollar.

More Mustard….

I’m so far behind on this project it’s not funny. I’ve been frustrated with the lack of ideas and the lack of motivation to pick up the camera, feeling like a charlatan and a fake and a fraud. I love what I do with the camera though and need to put those doubts away and just be with what I see.

Today I left my house on foot and ended up at the top of Bernal Hill, thinking and remembering why I love my adopted city.
