Bought these seeds planning to use them in baking...but not to be. Instead I made a tea with them and I was nicely surprised by the pleasant taste...I did add some Splenda though.
- 3 ounces pomegranate seeds, dried (I used Shan)
- 6 cups water
- 1 teaspoon Splenda sugar substitute (can use honey instead)
- Bring water to rolling boil. Add seeds and turn heat to low. Simmer for about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to steep 10-15 minutes. Strain and sweeten.
- This is good hot or cold.
Liked it! The tea turned out pretty weak but it has a nice flavor and a pretty pink color. I added a star anise in my second cup which complemented the pomegranate and increased the overall flavor. Thanks for a great idea!
