Seven ways with pomegranates

While pomegranate arils taste great on their own, you can also use it in:
1. Salads – The beautiful red arils look like rubies and will brighten up any salad. You can also try some of the salads on the website, which includes a delicious Avocado Pomegranate Salad and the Pomegranate Apple Salad.
2. Desserts – Simply sprinkle a few seeds over ice cream, frozen yogurt, or sorbet. It also does wonders to a tapioca pudding, you can find the recipe on the website
3. With meat ¬- The tang of pomegranate seeds and their juice matches nicely with roasted or grilled meats of all sorts. Check out the recipe for Persian Pomegranate Lamb on the website.
4. Pomegranate and olives: a match made in heaven - Serve pomegranate seeds alongside olives with drinks or sprinkle black olive tapenade with a few pomegranate seeds for a fabulous tart-sweet-salty-bitter burst of flavours.
4. Pomegranate Bruschetta - Spread a bit of goats’ cheese on toasted baguette slices and top with minced red onion, minced parsley, and some pomegranate seeds.
5. Pomegranate dip - Whirl some pomegranate seeds with roasted red peppers, walnuts, and a bit of fruity olive oil (season to taste with salt and pepper) to make a zingy spread perfect for spreading on crackers or serving as a dip with crudites. Full recipe on the website.
6. Pomegranate Condiments - Pomegranates are at once sweet and tart, making their flavour perfect for chutneys, jellies, and syrups.
7. Pomegranate drinks - Drop pomegranate seeds into champagne or sparkling cider for colour and flavour, or drink the juice freshly squeezed, it’s not only delicious but healthy too!
