besides eat them, of course. You see, I had a whole bunch of them and ate them happily, but now I have one or two left and I'm kinda over just eating the seeds plain. Anybody know what I can use them in? I thought about maybe muffins or something, but I dont know...

Please help! I'm hungry. Wink

I know that with the seeds, you can make wine. ^^ You can also make some taffy with it... I don't have the recipes though. My mom makes it occasionally... ><

Well, I dont know too much about it, but I do know that there is some sort of Wician spell that involves burying them. You can also mush up the seeds & use the juice as a natural dye.

grenadine is pomegranate syrup. you could set yourself up for a solid month of drinking shirley temples, pink squirrels, tequila sunrises, and other pink, girly drinks.

I think I shall try freezing them, and maybe in a salad. I'd love to try them in some kind of tasty drink, but I don't think that would be wise since I'm currently pregnant. Wink However, I can make the syrup to use for afterwards, right? Pomegranate taffy...mm, sounds tasty. Course I am a candy-aholic.

pomegranates are my favorite fruit EVER.  i never thought to freeze them.  we used to have a pom tree when i was a kid and it brings back good memories.  now, it pains me to pay $2 for one, but i have a love and i must have em.  i'll seriously have to try freezing tonight.  good suggestion!

Oh my gosh, taking out all the seeds is enough work as it is, I can't imagine trying to only eat the juiceish part around the seeds!
I froze them and they're pretty tasty. I added a bit of sugar, just to sweeten em up, and it's mm-mm good. Thanks for the suggestion. Wink

I've always just eaten the seeds, and the fruity red part around them, not the white foamy stuff.  One quick question, are pomegranates in season right now?

Yuuuum, pomegranates (also called gnasnberries by my group of friends...).
So you do or don't eat the white stuffy?
We (me and my insane friends) just stick one in the middle of our circle, and go wild with picking out the seedy red thingies!

My boyfriend and I once made a simple roast chicken, which turned out beautifully. The recipe called for fresh butter and mustard to slather onto it, along with some crusty bread, and as delicious as it was it felt like something was missing.

So, on a whim, we split open a pomegranate and nibbled on the seeds as we finished off our meal. Scrumptious!

use the seeds as a dressing over a salad made from chunks of watermelon, fetta cheese and red salad onion

My husband introduced me to this- After you get all the white pith off the seeds, place only the seeds in a cereal bowl with milk and white sugar- just a tsp or to taste. Eat like cereal. I was hesitant to try this, but it is very good!!!

Enjoy! Cheesy

Not really.  Erm..the look kind of like God screwed up a raspberry and turned it inside out.  There is a peel part that is dark red, and inside is a white part (like an orange). Then inside that its like little raspberry bits (or orange bits depending on the anology you prefer Wink ), except they are like the size of a finger nail.  Each one is a seed (like a raspberry) and some people eat just the flesh around the seed and some people eat the whole thing. They are yummy, tart fruits but the taste is not really comprable to anything. The juice stains...

mmmmmmm I love them.  I've never eaten the seeds.  I just stick them in my mouth, eat the red gunk, and spit the seed out.

A really good way to get the fruits out is to tear apart your pomegranate in a big bowl of water:

- first barely cut through the skin in a couple of places on the fruit
- place in a big bowl of water and tear the pom apart
- just pluck at the fruits which will sink, and rub the white pith (which isn't eaten, kind of like the pith of an orange, bitter) and outer peel off of them- which will float.
- pour off or scoop out the peel and pith: throw them away, and pour your water with fruits into a strainer.

I like tossing pommegranates in spring rolls and guacamole (with a little bit of the juice too).

yum,

OLDPOST!

I take the seeds, gnaw off the juicy part, and either spit out or swallow the seeds. Crunching them seems unnatural to me O__o

You could try a fruit terrine, perhaps? Basically that means you use an unflavored gelatin (or agar agar I'm sure would work) and use juice and pack it full of various fruits (think fruit in jello, but this is more jello than fruit). What about some sort of muffin? If you can find a raspberry muffin recipe I'm sure these would substitute deliciously.
