Pork belly with a sticky pomegranate glaze is a gorgeous and festive dish that really bursts with flavor. The delicious sauce is made with a reduction of pomegranate juice and traditional holiday spices like cinnamon and allspice. You can make it in advance and warm it up in the oven - another benefit when you're cooking for a crowd over the holidays. Serves six people

A heavy bottom oven proof baking pan with a lid, large enough to hold all the pork in one layer (or a bit more than a layer). I suggest a Le Creuset pan or Emile Henri pan. Both are oven to table.
A juicer for the pomegranate juice.
