Amazing Pomegranate Recipes

These incredibly delicious Pomegranate Recipes show you how to enjoy pomegranates in almost every way! Get ready for pomegranate goodness.

The crown jewel of Fall has arrived!  

Pomegranates are beautiful to admire with their crimson skins and globe-like structures.  I always buy an abundance to use in my holiday home décor and in my recipes.  I use them for cooking and whatever is leftover stays on the counter to look amazing!

Besides their beautiful outer qualities, it’s what’s on the inside that we are talking about today.  

Pomegranates can be used whole, juiced, or made into a syrup.  The sky is the limit! (Pro tip: the ruby red seeds inside are called “arils” – they contain the seed & the juice.)

I’m sharing with you some of the best pomegranate recipes I’ve found and can’t wait for you to see them!

Pomegranate Appetizers:

Apple, Brie and Pomegranate Flatbread

Get the recipe for this Apple, Brie and Pomegranate Flatbread from our friends at Real CA Milk – it’s best paired with sparkling wine (from California of course!) but you do you.

Seared Scallops with Pomegranate Drizzle

Speaking of using pomegranate arils in a appetizer that can double as a main dish, how about this recipe from G-Free Foodie?  Seared Scallops with Pomegranate Drizzle has me weak in the knees!

Endive Cups with Pancetta and Pomegranate from G-Free Foodie

Savory Pomegranate Recipes & Salads:

Autumn “Caprese” with California Grown Persimmon and Pomegranate

Sarah of The Delicious Life says that there is no absolute way to arrange the ingredients on the platter. She likes to keep each of the ingredients generally together, and everything arranged in rainbow-ish order. However, she says tossing everything into a bowl probably works, too.
