Macerated Pomegranate & Figs

There are brands we absolutely love here at CNM, and Willy’s is one of them. Here we use their delicious Aged Apple Balsamic Vinegar to create a smooth, deep flavour profile.
Perfect for topping granola, yoghurt or vegan ice cream, these vitamin C rich macerated fruits are zesty, sweet and get better with time in a sealed jar in the fridge. Add for a tasty immune boost when you need it most!
