    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.

    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?!

  3. Sara

    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)

  4. C.

    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!

  5. Angie

    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.

  6. Morgan

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

    My mouth is watering!

  7. Lisa

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

  8. Emily

    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!

  9. Laura

    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.

  10. Barbara

    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.

  11. Doreen

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

  12. Sims Family

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

  13. Jenna

    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.

  14. Becky Johnson

    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!!

  15. JCS

    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.

  16. Becky

    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?

  17. RoweKlan

    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.

  18. The Nye's

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

  19. Cecily

    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.

  20. Brandon & Aimee

    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??

  21. Millers

    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 🙂

  22. The Godfrey's

    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!

  23. whyme

    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.

  24. The Giffords

    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!


    Just found your blog. Fabulous!! I have two boys about the same age as yours and so I love hearing any advice about what to feed them. I’m excited to start trying some of your recipes.

    Thank you!

    My favorite things to do with pomegranates are eat the plain! my husband will peel a whole bunch for me and then I can just have a bowl full when I feel like it. but I also love them in salads. i guess i have never used them in very creative ways because I would rather just eat a bowl full of them!

  27. Melanie Anne

    Hi Jenny,
    What a fun give away! How about pumpkin pomegranate muffins?? That sounds fun. I really love pomegranate salad! So tangy and delish!

  28. Thatcher Family

    Here’s a post for my friend (cuz it’s her recipe!)…It’s a pom sheet cake with lime glaze. VERY tasty!!

  29. Janell and Shannon

    My husband and I love mojitos…so how about mixing up the usual mojito and adding in some pomegranate juice.

  30. The Russells

    the first thing that popped in to my mind was pomegranate cheesecake!
    I have never really cooked with pomegranates…but all the things listed in the above comments sound absolutely delicious!! I wish I had one right now…looking forward to what you come up with!!

  31. Emily

    I hope I win. I would love to have a case of fresh pomegranates.

    I would use the pomegranate juice in a sorbet. Then I would make a garnish with the seeds, and make a brittle.

  32. Mary Ann

    I’ve made pomemgranate pound cake, pomegranate syrup for pancakes, and other stuff, but I think they would taste great in a sauce for chicken, or using the juice as the base flavor for a cake and then decorating with the seeds. We enjoy them plain the most.

  33. Anne

    I think pomegranate cupcakes sound awesome but I’m dying to try them in pancakes… or sorbet would be delicious and beautiful too! I can’t wait to see what you come up with! 🙂

  34. Katrina

    Hmm, I’m all about the chocolate chip cookie. So, can pomegranates be dried like cranberries? A white chocolate, pomegranate, pecan cookie. Sounds good to me! If they can’t be dried, I’d try them fresh in a cookie. I’m not afraid! ;)I also love what someone said–a dark chocolate ice cream with pomegranates. Sounds yummy.

  35. Kristen

    How about pomegranate pancakes with a pomegranate reduction. MMM! I have also made pomegranate butter before and it is delicious!
