Enjoy the seeds (arils); save the skins. Photo
|If you buy pomegranates and toss the skins away after you’ve scooped out the seeds, you’re missing out.
Save the skins in the freezer, and use them to hold salads or desserts for special occasions.
From chicken salad to ice cream and sorbet, the skins make festive serving dishes—all sprinkled with a few pomegranate arils, of course.
To enjoy the arils (seeds) while preserving the skins:
1. Use a serrated knife to remove the top quarter of the pomegranate. Scrape out the seeds and the yellow-white membrane with a spoon. Discard membrane and save the seeds.
2. Wrap the shell and store in the freezer until you have enough shells to serve your guest list.
3. Plan the party, make your dish and serve it in the pom skin.
