If you read my previous post you saw that I wanted to use my new food processor more. And you may have noticed my badge on the right side of the page that I post to Gastropost, usually through my Tumblr page. This week the challenge was tough: cranberries or pomegranates. You know which way I went from this blog title, but the recipe I made could use either. I will point out that I am a huge fan of cranberries, even visited a bog last year and brought home many yummy things. But this week, there were lots of pomegranate seeds in my fridge that needed to be eaten.
I used to post monthly to the Daring Baker, but some of the challenges I found either too intricate, were recipes I was not interested in eating or already knew how to make. The one month I regret not trying was scones. So what a perfect vessel for many pomegranate seeds!
I used the recipe for raspberry scones found in the recipe book that came with my food processor, obviously swapping out the raspberries for pomegranates. This came together so quickly, I was amazed at the ease in making it. Having the food processor definitely helped!
I misread a step and only scored the tops instead of cutting all the way through before baking. But warm out of the oven, with some butter, these were quite tasty! @WineGuyTO took one to work but warned it may be eaten before he got there.
Even Gastropost put into this week’s paper!
