    I have a recipe for pomegranate fudge on my blog!I love to use it in cheesecake and you can make a savory citrus glaze for chicken with pom.Always good with icecream and milk too.

    I was thinking a pomegranate marinated pork would be delicious…

    Ashley says:

    White chocolate pomegranate bread sounds like it would be delicious.

    Oh…maybe some cinnamon spiced pomegranate muffins!

    Two simple ideas. Toss some pomegranates on a salad. Adds a great tang. Also for the kiddies, amke a face with them on a bagle smeared with cream cheese. But honestly what is better than just putting them in a bowl and eating them while you chat with family?!

    How about gingerbread cookies with a pomegranate juice glaze on top (I’m thinking icing sugar with a good amount of juice to make a loose glaze)

    white chocolate pom bark 🙂

    C. says:

    I can see my ideas have already been taken… but a dark chocolate pom bark or as a fish or pork topping or marinade. Yum!

    Angie says:

    I am a simple girl. You can make some delicious pomegranate jelly with the juice, a little sugar, and some fruit pectin. It makes a yummy PB&J sandwich. This even replaces my favorite boysenberry jam. You can also add the seeds to it and substitute this for cranberry sauce on your turkey.

    Morgan says:

    Throw some pomegranate seeds on a big green salad, grilled chicken, blue or feta cheese, topped with a nice vinaigrette.

    My mouth is watering!

    JJLanier says:

    A Pomegranate Parfait sounds yummy!

  12. 12
    Stacie Aho says:

    How about an apple and pomegranate crisp?

    They sound good to just put in a salad with spinach. Yum!

    Lisa says:

    Oh, how I love pomegranates. I am possibly going to think of a good salad. Pomogranate chopped liver? Okay, maybe not.

  14. 14
    Allie says:

    I have no original ideas. That is why I’m always surfing sites like yours. I just love pomegranates!!

  15. 15
    Clumbsy Cookie says:

    I think I would go for a pomegranate & champagne sorbet. Have a great weekend you too!

  16. 16
    Emily says:

    Pomegranate Pecan muffins would be great- I just need an expert to figure out how the make them. Thats why I keep coming back to your blog!

  17. 17
    Krista says:

    I’m thinking something along the lines of pomegranate chicken.

  18. 18
    Laura says:

    I love to make Pomegranate salad – 1 cup whip cream – whipped and sweetened, arils from the pomegranate along with a couple of diced apples and slice bananas.

  19. 19
    Barbara says:

    Jenny, I’m just in love with those fresh pomegrante seeds. I think homemade ice cream with pomegrante seeds would be delish. A great dessert right now for your warm Arizona weather.

  20. 20
    Doreen says:

    My Mom loves Pomegranates! Going to try to win this for her. 🙂 How about some Pomegranate Dark Chocolate ice cream?!

  21. 21
    Stephanie says:

    Is there such a thing as pomegranate sorbet? Because I think that sounds good.

  22. 22
    kamewh says:

    Chocolate Covered Pomegranate Seeds are really good!

  23. 23
    Sims Family says:

    Have you tried it in a chicken salad? (Like a baby shower salad with grapes, etc.) Good on croissants. It’s tasty and colorful.

  24. 24
    Kim says:

    I love pomegranates in fruit salad…not super creative but super good!

  25. 25
    Jenna says:

    When I lived in Greece we often paired pomegranate (cheap and plentiful there) with roasted lamb. I have yet to try it here, but I’d like to do a light pomegranate-infused glaze or vinaigrette. Pomegranate molasses is very popular in the Middle East, and this would be along the same lines, but a bit lighter.

  26. 26
    Becky Johnson says:

    Um..I’m just going to throw out the old fruit in some jello idea. I think pomegranates would be good in a pomegranate flavored jello with some good old whipcream on top!!

  27. 27
    Jennifer says:

    Use the pom juice in a smoothie with milk and ice.

  28. 28
    Brooke says:

    How about a pomegranate crepe with a pomegranate sauce drizzled on top. Yum!

  29. 29
    Laura says:

    I would say…pomegranate greek yogurt. Extra zip 🙂

  30. 30
    JCS says:

    Pomegranate Bread sounds really good, with a pomegranate glaze on top, or poke holes in the top of the bread so the juice soaks into the bread.

  31. 31
    Janssen says:

    How about chicken salad? Mmm. . . delicious.

  32. 32
    Becky says:

    Those white chocolate blondies you made would be great with pomegranates. Or what about a pomegranate salsa with peaches and onions and maybe avocado or something?

  33. 33
    RoweKlan says:

    I Love pomegranates tossed in with a fruit salad. I mix cream cheese, marshmellow cream, and whipping cream in with the fruit. We have it every year with our thanksgiving turkey.

  34. 34
    The Nye's says:

    I love pomegranate juice, so why not make it better, by making it into a pomegranate/sorbert slush drink! Perfect for showers ect.

  35. 35
    rubymama says:

    I think a type of Pomegranate muffin with macadamia nuts and white chocolate would be fabulous!

  36. 36
    Zesty Cook says:

    I have a pom roasted pork tenderloin with maple syrup that is pretty yummy!

  37. 37
    Cecily says:

    Many of my idea have already been written down, but granadas (pomegranates) are popular in Spain and the Middle East, so why not merge those flavors: salads, marinades and sauces, or desserts that are light and not too heavy. I wonder if you could make a pomagranate curd.

  38. 38
    kirsten says:

    pomegranate martini! YUM! Does that count as a recipe?

  39. 39
    rowleypoley says:

    Pomegranate salad is a staple at our house during the holidays!! Pomegranate sorbet sounds fabulous too!!

  40. 40
    Mary says:

    How about white chocolate, pomegranate, macadamia nut cookies. Three of my most favorite things combined!

  41. 41
    Brandon & Aimee says:

    Man, I can’t think of a baking recipe for pomegranate, but I think they would be good in salads, for the juice and the crunchy seed. Love them! How about in ice cream or smoothies??

  42. 42
    woodsyouknowit says:

    Pomegranate jam or you could add pomegranates into a pound cake. Cake and jam, can’t go wrong with that!

  43. 43
    Lynne says:

    A dark chocolate pomegranate cake! Yum!

  44. 44
    Millers says:

    Hummm, everyone seems to have really great ideas. I can’t really think of an original one. My first thought was some kind of muffin, or yogurt topping. OOhh I know, some kind of granola and pomegranate bar. Yeah I think that sounds yummy 🙂

  45. 45
    The Godfrey's says:

    OH I love pomegranates! I love how they pop in your mouth… my FAVORITE thing is a pomegranate salsa with feta cheese and red onions on some whole wheat pita chips. OH my!

  46. 46
    whyme says:

    My favorite way to use pomegranates (other than to just eat them) is to make pomegranate iced tea. 16 oz. of pom mixed into a gallon of tea is just yummy.

  47. 47
    Amy says:

    Pom cheesecake sounds yummy.

  48. 48
    Sandy says:

    White cake with a Pomegranate filling… sounds interesting…. you never know!

  49. 49
    The Giffords says:

    I think that a cake with pomegranate either as a filling, frosting or glaze would be yummy. I was thinking along the lines of a Jell-o poke cake where you bake the cake, poke it with a fork when it comes out and pour a pomegranate glaze over the cake. Let it soak in and top with cool whip. Yum!

    Thank you!
