What to do with Pomegranates! (Guest Post)

Hello again, Tight Wad in Utah friends!

I've got another great recipe for you to try that involve peanut butter and pomegranate! Strange, right? But, these are, simply put, like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, but in a dessert form! You make a peanut butter cookie dough, press it into the bottom of a square pan, top it with some pomegranate jelly and then sprinkle on the last of the cookie dough. The hardest part would be making the jelly–but honestly,  it only takes 4 ingredients and maybe 5 minutes to cook. Super simple and festive for the season! So, next time pomegranates go on sale, give these a try! They make a delicious treat that everyone will gobble up!

I also happened to have more pomegranate recipes over at The Fruit Company blog so, I'd love for you to stop by and say hi! 

This recipe is delicious, festive and would be perfect for all those holiday parties I know you have coming up! It takes just minutes to make and it’s completely red and green! Perfect for Christmas time. And, you know everyone is going to want to make desserts because “it’s the holidays!” but this is a nice healthy recipe to keep that scale from creeping upwards. This salsa is sweet from the pomegranate arils, spicy from the jalapenos, tangy from the lime juice, and just downright yummy with everything else!
When I first made this, I was worried that the crunch from the seed inside the aril would be annoying in a salsa, but when you eat them with tortilla chips, you don’t even notice them at all! The bigger crunch from the chip takes away from the smaller crunch from the seed. It just worked out perfectly and everyone who had this loved it.
