Blueberry Pomegranate Microwave Muffins

30 Apr

And here’s the final entry for my April baking craze…

I’ve had a pomegranate sitting in my fridge for an embarrassingly long time, and no idea what to do with it.  So, I decided to make another batch of muffins, last week, to use up the seeds.

By the way, if you’ve ever wondered how to get the seeds out of a pomegranate with no mess and no fuss?

Fill a big bowl with cool water. Submerge your pomegranate, and cut it in half with a sharp knife.  Once it’s halved, use your fingers to scoop out the seeds and crack the fruit further open, all underwater.  The seeds sink to the bottom, while the pith and peel float to the top.  Simply skim off the chunks of pith and peel, at the end, and drain your seeds.  You’re all set, with no juice staining your fingers, your table, or your clothes.

The following recipe is adapted from one found here.
