What to do with Pomegranates! (Guest Post)

Peanut Butter & Pomegranate Jelly Bars 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, t hese 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!  Pomegranate Salsa This recipe is delicious, festive and would be perfect for all those holiday parties I know you have coming up! It takes ju
