Expert Tips

  • To get the seeds from a pomegranate, cut pomegranate in half and pry out the pulp-encased seeds, removing any of the light-colored membrane that adheres.
  • Instead of serving the sauce separately, you may want to spoon it over the French toast slices and top with additional pomegranate seeds.
