While the internet and foodie magazines are filled with pumpkin recipes, there’s another fall favorite that is just starting to make it’s appearance. Yes, it’s the pomegranate. YAY! Our small pomegranate tree has about a dozen fruits on it. That’s barely a week supply for my family. Although the pomegranates we purchased last week weren’t super sweet, my kids quickly inhaled their bowls of pomegranate everyday.
I love introducing pomegranates to my friends. and I really love cooking, baking and experimenting with pomegranates. And most of the time, I have to do it behind my kids’ backs, as they easily can eat a pomegranate each in one sitting. Needless to say, my husband and I are expert pomegranate shuckers. When the kids are off to bed, Hubby likes to open a slew of them while watching his weird zombie shows on tv. Then for breakfast, the kids are thrilled to see a giant bowl of pomegranate seeds waiting for them in the fridge.
These Pomegranate Pancakes didn’t last long either. I’ve got pomegranate arils baked into each pancake, then topped them with more pomegranate arils, and then drizzled with, yup, a maple-pomegranate syrup.
The kids will now do whatever I will tell them.
At least for a little while.
