I just eat thim as the pips, by the handful. You can juice them, you can put them in bread or muffins, you can sprinkle them on fruit salads, you can put them in smoothies, you can sprinkle them on yogurt, you can have them in oatmeal or on cereal, you can do pretty much anything you can with berries.
My favorite way to open them is to get a big kitchen bowl, and a plastic shopping bag (like a grocery bag) next to each other. I cut a slit in the top of the pomegranate and kind of split it with my hands over the bowl. Then I tear it apart in sections and brush/pick the seeds out, putting the pith and skin in the plastic bag as I go. That way I don't miss any seeds, the juice drippage is less, and it's a little faster.
Roh, my baby boy says he don't want them in his blue berry muffins..lol..he didn't like them straight up, but he gets hidden things a lot. All my kids do. I will try them in everything you mentioned. They were not hard to pick apart. I was impressed at how many seeds were in one pomegranate. I told hubby I am gonna feel up some freezer bags full of them, so I can add a handful to stuff I cook here and there. I pre cut, celery and onion, and freeze it, so all I got to do is grab a handful and add to soups and stuff. They remind me of cranberry's a little, kind of tart, but in a good way! Steph
I put them in my yogurt last night, and again in jello for desert. I really like fresh Palmegrant. I am buying a bunch today to freeze soon as I get to Wal-Mart. My teen said yuck, but she will like them in muffins and smoothies I am sure. Especially if she don't no there their! Amazing what kids think they like and don't like. I love my crock pot for that very reason. Steph
