To shake up my daily fruit intake I like getting tubs of freeze dried fruit to stash in my desk at work.

I noticed this weekend that Just Tomatoes has new-to-me varieties at the grocery store: pomegranate, blackberry, and apricot. I splurged and bought a little tub of pomegranate. According to the packaging, one small 3oz tub is the equivalent of 8 pomegranates.

What do they taste like?

The freeze dried pomegranates look like dried rose hips, being the pretty shade of pink they are. They’re crunchy -still have their seeds inside. They are sweet with a little bit of tang at the end. Their taste is a bit more concentrated, more distinct. In this fruit form they taste a bit more floral than pomegranate juice does.

What can you do with them?

I’m eating them out of hand with almonds- which serve as a nice crunchy mix.
I can easily imagine these being mixed into:

Check out the recipes on the Just Tomatoes website for their dried pomegranates. From rice pudding, to cole slaw… I think these crunchies are going to find their way into my yogurt and salads.
