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.
Success is not the result of spontaneous combustion. You must first set yourself on fire.
Sometimes you just have to close your eyes, breathe, and just hold on till the ride stops...
Excellence is the result of caring more than others think wise, risking more than others think safe, dreaming more than others think practical, and expecting more than others think possible.

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?
