I want to buy pomegranates for a celebration we're having on Sunday (they're traditional for the Jewish New Year, which we're celebrating a bit early so guests can come). My husband is sure he will not find them at Giant, Safeway, or Harris Teeter. I'm going to try Whole Foods, which I assume is my best bet. Anywhere else near Arlington likely to have them?
I plan to mix the pomegranate seeds into hummos - someone did that at a party a couple of years ago and it was delicious. We may also drink pomegranate juice direct from the fruit by sticking straws in them.
As an aside, my favorite local dish with pomegranates in it is simply the bread-dipping olive oil at Zaytinya -- they drizzle pomegranate juice or some such in it, and it's just delicious. Would be happy to hear of other good dishes!
