    Place the pomegranate juice, lime zest, lime juice, slices of lime and thyme in a pan, bring to the boil, cook for approx. 5 mins. Add the preserving sugar, cook on a rolling boil for approx. 4 mins. Mix in the previously set aside pomegranate seeds and set the jam aside.
  • Dough

Remove the pan from the heat, allow the dough to cool slightly, gradually mix in the eggs using the dough hook on a hand mixer. The dough should be soft, but not runny. Mix in 100 g of cheese, set aside the rest.
