Any ideas for creative ways to use a bunch of pomegranate seeds? I already sprinkle them in salads and cereal/oatmeal, but wonder if there are grand possibilities I am not thinking of. I have about 3 1/2 c. in my fridge right now.

One part vodka, one part pomegranate juice, a bit of Cointreau, half a dozen (or more) pomegranate seeds, a squeeze of lime.
Trade secret is to de-seed the Pom in a bowl of cold water. The pith floats and easy to pull out. Put the seeds on a paper towel, in a ziplock container, and use for a week or two.
Or, Put in your juicer with some OJ like they do in Turkey... enjoy.
I think this combination (without the bulgur) can be diluted with olive oil, vinegar and sugar into a chimichurri / agridulce / chutney depending on what part of the world you want to go with it.
I also think that it makes an excellent garnish on tatzikis / rayetas, stuffed poblanos, tabbouleh, babaganoushes, panzanellas, fattoushes...
You can also dry them and use them in curries instead or in addition to the tart flavor of tamarind.
A roasted beat and arugula salad with goat cheese is what I'm making tonight topped with pomegranate seeds is what I'm making tonight for dinner!
