I had a recipe all ready to make that involved a Plum. My local grocery store does not have plums now. So I picked up a pomegranate instead. I am glad I did because then I realized that my baby boy had never eaten one before! He was sitting in his high chair as I cut open the pomegranate, and I could not remove those seeds fast enough! He gobbled them up and wanted more!
I purchased this heart candy mold several years ago for Thanksgiving. several years ago= about 4 years ago. when I made heart-shaped garlic butter for Thanksgiving. I have meant to make heart ice cubes for a while now. I thought it would be super cute to make pomegranate ice cubes for the holiday season!
I have skimmed articles online about easy ways to peel pomegranates. I ignored them and peeled my pomegranate like an amateur.
And yes, my hands did get very sticky! And Also my son and I were both chowing down on these sweet little seeds as this was going on!
I placed about 3 or 4 seeds in each heart.
I froze the ice cubes for an afternoon.
I was surprised at how easy these came out! ( I guess I should mention that I also thought this was the right kind of mold for cream cheese mints once. HA HA. THOSE didn’t turn out so well)
I think these turned out to be so cute! What an adorable way to dress up a Spitzer or a clear soda during the holidays. These would also be cute for a Valentines Day party!
