Dehydrated pomegranate seeds make a fun snack, especially for kids! They are tart, sweet, and crunchy like candy, but without the processed sugars and dyes. You can add them to yogurt or cereal for a flavorful antioxidant kick, or just carry them in a bag for an on-the-go snack.
If dehydrated properly, they can be stored for years if vacuum sealed, and months to a year in a mason jar. Store away from direct sunlight!
Properly dehydrated pomegranate seeds will feel dry to the touch. They may be slightly tacky to the touch, but should should not clump together or feel moist. When eaten, they will crunch nicely in your mouth. If yours do not feel this way, just put them back in the dehydrator for a few more hours!
Pomegranate seeds are delicious to eat fresh as well, and you do not always have to dehydrate them. The reason to dehydrate pomegranate would be to increase shelf life, or add a little more crunch, such as for a salad, cereal, or yogurt topper!
