The Great NESSAholic Pomegranite Cooking Challenge
« on: October 06, 2004, 05:21:42 am »
I know some of you like to cook.  And we know VC is a Pomegranaholic.  So can you come up with a recipe incorporating Pomegranites?  Perhaps pomegranite cheesecake? Or perhaps Pomegranite jello?  It is all up to your keen taste and imagination.  The only rule is that pomegranites must be no less than the secondary most prominent flavor, and it must taste absolutely delicious to a pomegranite lover!  Unless for some reason VC acknowledges some absolutely subperb recipe the winner will be decided in a poll in the poll section of NESSAholics.com's forums.

VC is really not a part of this.  I just thought it would be interesting/funny/artistic to try it.  You must actaully post a recipe indicating the ingredients and instructions.

What do you mean by super intimate? Like we all sit around sharing pomegranites after the show?

I went to a house warming party this weekend and right in the corner behind the pool was a lovely blooming pomegranite tree. My friend said she doesn't like them and will bring some in for me. But I am not down for cooking anything. That would seriously be a challenge for me. Isn't that why we have stores and restaurants?

Oh yeah, something to keep in mind:

Recipes with milk or milk products will be considered, but it would be great if you find a way to work around them since VC won't be able to eat them as is, and will have to be adapted later.  Unless I'm wrong about her not being able to consume milk and milk products.  That is if you care,  and she actaully reads this thread and tries to make them, or such things.

Other people would probably like them though, like me.  So fire away.

It doesn't have to be a complicated recipe.  You could come up with a salad or something.  Like a fruit cocktail.  Or maybe an interesting way to eat them.  I'm making a huge guess but maybe one reason she likes them has to do with her being a person who likes to push all the buttons.  With pomegranites you have to pull out all the seeds.  It makes sense in my mind anyway.  It drives some people nuts having to go thru the whole darn thing taking out seed by seed.

Yeah! All our cheesecake recipes would have to be lactose-free for Nessa :P

Is it the lactose that makes her not be able to eat them?  I know that is common, but some people just have food allergies.  I'm super allergic to alot of things but luckly no food allergies or major reactions to things.  I just didn't assume it was lactose.  Does anyone actaully know?

Well hell there is always lactose free milk.  Why not drink that?  I'll go and buy and try some to see how the flavor would be changed by it.  Then adapt it with sucrose or something.....who knows.  Does it taste like crap?

You could try 'Tofutti' as base ingredient for any Pomegranite Cheesecake! I
am sure it would make a great substitute for Philadelphia Cream Cheese 8)

haha...yeah...I've never seen that brand before.....even though I did look for it....where to buy it.....I was thinking more in general with regards to the milk issue.

I'll have to go on a search for tofutti products I guess.

I'm working on Cheesecake Grenadine.  I might add marsala wine; I might not.  I haven't decided yet.  I haven't bought anything yet, I'm just putting together the ingredients together in my head.

I found where to buy tofutti here in town.  Since it is made with tofu and soy products I wonder if I could add granola and perhaps honey to work with that part of the flavor in the crust along with the graham crackers....I wonder.
