  1. Place the sliced pears and pomegranate seeds into a bowl. Toss with lemon juice to coat. Combine the brown sugar, nutmeg, and cinnamon in a small cup or bowl, then mix into the fruit. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving to blend the flavors. Serve in individual dishes, and garnish with a sprinkling of chopped almonds and a sprig of mint.

This recipe is not only delicious, but also uses my favorite fruit--pomegranate! Accented by good, tart pears and spiced, the pomegranate seeds come to life!

Most helpful critical review

This is a good dish but very difficult to eat. Pomegranites have very hard seeds inside each little "berry" and although the presentation is beautiful the experience is less than desirable.
