    I've made this twice; once for Thanksgiving and once for Christmas. It is awesome with turkey and very simple to make. Buy 2 pomegranates to get 1 cup seeds.

    We liked it. The pomegranate seeds made it taste like nuts in the relish. We also added juice from a tangerine to it to help cut down the tart taste. Next time, though, I would add less pomegranate as it was quite a bit in the relish. Easy to make!
