I have been having such a good time making cordial this autumn! I brought home some poms from the market yesterday, they were definitely seconds, small and a bit scabby looking, but for $1 or so a kilo, I wasn’t too worried. In the end I made a double batch of cordial from this recipe: http://growharvestcook.com.au/tag/pomegranate/ and boy is it yummy! I’ll be going back for more next week, you can also freeze the seeds for later use, so make the most of them while they’re in season!April 3, 2011 at 11:57 pm #494054
What do you use the seeds for mudhen?April 4, 2011 at 1:26 am #494055
This is really my first time dealing with pomegranates in bulk, Feywind, but according to the net, you can freeze the seeds to use later for juice, cordial or jam/jelly or even for sprinkling on salads. Because the season is relatively short, it’s nice to know you can freeze them to make into more time consuming things later.April 4, 2011 at 2:15 am #494056
thanks mudhen. Will try that when I can get some.
I bought a pomegranate (from USA) as on special few months ago soaked the seeds for a few weeks in water and yippee it took about 3wks but about 8 have sprouted. Didnt think they would coming from US.April 4, 2011 at 1:50 pm #494057
I wonder if you could use this recipe to make Banana Passionfruit as the seeds are simalar.
I have a plants growing over the chooks pen and I bottle a lot of it for icecream or we jsut eat it. I tried the passinfruit cordial but it didn’t just come out right.:(April 4, 2011 at 6:45 pm #494058
I would give it a go, Robyne. The taste ends up being a bit lemony, but I’m sure you could cut down the amount of lemon juice by as much as half, and still have a nice cordial.April 6, 2011 at 1:20 pm #494059
I made some Banana passionfruit cordial using the pomegranate recipe came out lovely. So now I can use all that is frozen.
After I went looking on the internet for more recipes found this one its from http://www.towards-sustainability.com

3 mangoes coarsley chopped and very ripe
375g caster sugar
2 stalks lemongrass bruised

60ml 1/4 cup lime juice or to taste.
Combine mango, sugar, lemon grass, ginger, vanilla bean and seeds and 1 1/2 cups water in a pan and stir over medium heat until sugar dissolves.
