Rub in the butter between your fingers until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over the top of the fruit.

My family and I thought this was a great recipe! I as usual could not stick to the recipe and modified it by halving the recipe putting it in a pie crust adding lemon juice to the apples using more pomegranate (as suggested in a previous review) and dotting the top with caramel quarters. I was really surprised as it was not 'seedy' as I had expected and the chewy bits of caramel were quite nice! This dessert was a big hit! Read More

We tried this recipe and it was not very good at all. My husband winced at his first bite and proceeded to spit out several pomegranate seeds. Yikes! The cinnamon was also very strong. Only dentists would recommend this recipe as it would increase their business in repairing broken teeth! Read More

I scaled this down to 2 servings and used a 7 x 5" pan. That made 1/8 of a pomegranate so I just used about 1/2 c seeds. It's very good but the pomegranate taste wasn't very noticeable although that could be due to my scaling down not the original recipe. I will use more pomegranate seeds next time and maybe even some pomegranate syrup. Read More

YUM! I saw pomegranate at the grocery and decided to try it. It really adds good color and texture to the apple crisp. I added cardamom and carmel (the store bought apple-dipping variety). Good Stuff! Read More

Just made it tonight and it was absolutely delicious!! Some reviewers had mentioned that the topping wasn't enough so I just made sure not level off when measuring and had just enough. Also in response to other reviewers complaining of the pomegranate being too crunchy perhaps it wasn't ripe enough? We had no issue with the pomegranate being too crunchy but it did complement the apples beautifully. Read More

Um yum! This was delicious. The first time I've ever used fresh pomegranate in a recipe. The only things I changed: I used seeds from the whole pomegranate (instead of half) put about 3 Tbsp. butter (in small chunks) in with the apple/pom mixture before topping with crisp and instead of white flour used 3/4 c. whole wheat 1/4 c. buckwheat and 3 Tbsp. ground flax for extra healthiness. Fantastic! Read More

This was my first experience with Pomegranate seeds and I did find them a bit tough on the teeth. It was pretty tasty - especially warm with vanilla ice cream on top. If I made it again I might cut back on some of the nutmeg and maybe some of the sugar. I would also use Granny Smith apples as the ones I had on hand were Fuji and quite sweet. I would like it a little more tart. Read More
