Brings back memories...I used to eat them fresh from a tree we had in the backyard back in Calif.

Costco has them separate from the rind? *squeals like a schoolgirl* I will definitely have to check that out!!

Costco now sells pomegranate seeds in a two-pack--fresh and ready to add to recipes, eat with yogurt, cottage cheese, etc.... soooo good and good for you!

my daughter eats them right out of the rind. I've only had the store bought juice, so can't attest to how good smooshing or crock-potting might be! good luck

Thanks for those suggestions. I probably wouldn't mind the seeds in a crock pot recipe.

You can make your own pomegranate juice if you just can't get over the seeds. (If you don't have a juicer and don't want the hassle of squashing them and straining it, you can use the seeds in your crockpot with the meat in a recipe that calls for the juice, or one you make up yourself, and then just leave the seeds behind when you serve it.)

I like to sprinkle a few pomegranate seeds in a fruit salad or a tossed salad. That way there is less crunchiness overall--more like adding nuts to the dish.

Bad news. I can't get past the seeds. The juice wasn't at all to sour, but the seeds inside seem weird to munch on. They seem kind of hard. Not like canteloupe seed, which I have in the past crunch on one, but just not to my taste.

I LOVE pomegranates!! First off, you can only eat the seeds. They are messy, just as a warning. Personally, I love eating them right out of the rind, but you can "smoosh" (for lack of a better word) them into a paste. As for recipes that call for juice, most want the packaged juice.

I blogged this but thought I'd send it to sparkteams in hopes of more feedback:

I bought one, but now what? All I have heard is that they are sour to the taste. I checked out sparkrecipes, but it only calls for juice and I can't tell if it's fresh from the fruit juice or already packaged as juice.

Does anyone know about pomegranates and how they can be used?
