Cottage Cheese and Cantaloupe-topped Waffle Sprinkled with Pomegranate Seeds December 25, 2014

Jamie says: Merry Christmas! I love pomegranate seeds. And they’re only in season for a short window, which includes the Christmas holiday. They look so festive. Like little light bulbs.

It’s one of the only fruits I can think of where you eat the seeds and discard the flesh. They do make a mess, though. Thank goodness for red aprons, right?

I usually quarter the pomegranate, seed it by hand (pulling the seeds away from the membrane), and scoop the seeds into a jar to have them ready for my next culinary masterpiece. Which in this case was a Cottage Cheese and Cantaloupe-topped Waffle Sprinkled with Pomegranate Seeds. The title says it all. Really.
