Good uses for pomegranites?
What are some good ideas for pomegranites? They are on sale at our coop for what I think is a good price. ($2 each or 3 for $5.)
Samples were put out the other day and they were really good. So it's put me in a pomegranite mood and I'm looking for good ideas for them.
I know they're good in green salads. And the other day I had a weird hankering -- a peanut butter sandwich with pomegranite. Thought the pomegranite would be kind of like jelly but better.
So what else?
We have a pomegranate tree in our yard, and aside from giving some away to friends, I do the following with them:
Toppings for yogurt, cereal and polenta
Incorporated into cheesecake
Added into Jell-O
Adding it to balsamic vinaigrette reduction for things like pork loin or chops
Fresh pomegranate juice is very nice. I grew up drinking it fresh, and it feels to me quite different from the stuff you get in bottles - you might disagree. It's especially good with a little pinch of kala namak. You could strain out the crushed pips; I quite enjoy the texture.
They're a basic component in fruit chaat.
And they're also good as a garnish for Middle Eastern or Turkish preparations with aubergine and yoghurt.
