Two lucky winners will win this great product!!

I was so in love with my Pomegranate Tool that I decided to pick up the phone one day to call the owner of Shoham in Israel. FYI – Shoham is the brains behind this clever device.

We immediately hit it off. We talked about Loblaws, Costco, Mangoes, Pomegranates, his travels to Toronto, my last trip to Israel etc.

He knew that I had blogged about the Pomegranate Tool and offered to send me TEN more. I knew immediately that I would be using them for a contest.

The box arrived this week and I was thrilled. (little things make me happy, did you know that?).

I wanted to celebrate with a contest when  MOMWHORUNS turns 6 months old…but I simply can’t wait.

Here’s the contest rules:

-the contest will run from Sunday Feb 13th  and will close on Sunday Feb 27th at 5 p.m. At that time I will use random.org to help me select TWO lucky winners.

If you win, I will contact you via email and you will have 7 days to reply. If I don’t hear from you another winner will be selected. Fair?

-only residents of Ontario can participate in this contest. (sorry).

-how do you win?  leave a comment by answering the following question: do you ever make anything with a pomegranate or do you just eat the seeds?

How simple is that? It would be nice if you would subscribe to momwhoruns but I won’t make it mandatory. But it would be really really nice to have a few more subscribers. (hint hint).

Wishing everyone the best of luck.

p.s I will be giving out the remainding pomegranate tools at future events!!

    I actually made a delicious endive, watercress and shallot salad with pomegranates recently. Would definitely make it again.

    I mostly just eat the seeds but I once added the seeds to my cranberry sauce : http://whatsonmyplate.net/2009/11/25/ginger-pomegranate-cranberry-sauce/

    So good!

    I have never made anything with pomegranate, since I love to eat the seeds by themselves too much!

  4. February 13th, 2011 at 17:21 | #4

    I love to put Pomegranates in salads. I also sprinkle on Greek Yoghurt.

  5. February 13th, 2011 at 17:23 | #5

    Wow that is awesome! I’m working on a killer pomegranate-pineapple Popsicle recipe right now. I gotta find one of these!

    I love pom seeds on salad, or in super-food drinks or on my steel-cut-oats after swimming in the morning. Pom gelato would be amazing too.

    I’ve been looking for a local source of shelled pom seeds, without luck. The Pom tool would be so amazing!

    I love pomegranate seeds, but no matter how hard I try I always get red pom juice all over the wall or myself so I would love this little contraption. Once I put the seeds on a lovely tossed salad, it was delicious.

    I just eat the seeds. I fell in love with Pomegranates while overseas in Istanbul, Turkey, a great super-food.

    I usually eat the seeds alone, but I do make a pomegranate martini that I put them in too!!!

  12. February 14th, 2011 at 06:45 | #12

    he he – I can’t wait to try this…I have only eaten the seeds, and once sprinkled some into a cocktail..:-)

    My family loves to eat pomegranate seeds. I just can’t imagine a tool that will help make the job easier. I don’t cook or bake with pomegranate, I should look up some recipes.

    Please enter me in the contest, cool looking device. Maybe you shoud represent them here and sell them!!
    I make a green salad that calls for pomegranate seed, also calls for pomegranate vinegar but not sure can get that kosher here.

    Love Pomegranates!!! Just like to eat them by themselves.

    I love pomegranate seeds in salad but also recently tried them with vanilla frozen yogurt – yum!

    I have used pomegranate seeds as a garnish on cheesecake. Nice presentation and so healthy!

    I freeze the seeds in a small plastic bag and then pull the amount out that I need whenever. I used them in natural yogurt for breakfast or have put them in Champagne on a special occasion, or just eaten them still a little frozen by themselves.

    OMG i want that tool!!! Usually I just eat the seeds and my lil pup Charlie loves them too. She eats pomegranate seeds with me every night. I have on one occasion brought a bag into the movie theater and dumped in my Yogen Fruz. AMAZING! Very curious about this tool. My trick now is ripping them up in a big bowl of water. This tool looks highly superior.

    I’ve followed you on Twitter and Facebook! Hollller

    I usually eat them plain… like the idea of using them in a martini… can’t go wrong there.

    February 14th, 2011 at 16:19 | #21

    I eat the seeds alone – not much of a cook! I do like it as the flavoring of tea as well.

    made pomegranate chicken once for the jewish new year when it’s customary to eat pomegranates but it wasn’t such a hit. we decided we’d stick to just eating all 613 seeds!

    I love it so much and put it in my drinks, and eat the seeds alone. I even throw in the seeds into muffins that i make.

  26. February 15th, 2011 at 11:59 | #26

    We usually just eat them plain but we have tried tossing it in our salads and it was actually ok, not bad.

    I usually just eat the seeds alone! Thanks for the contest!

  28. February 16th, 2011 at 10:19 | #28

    I used the technique they use with this tool, using some stuff I had at home – works pretty well, tho a bit messy without the kit – thanks! ;)

    Generally, we just eat the seeds but I have found a delicious arugula, pistachio and pomegranate salad recipe we have been dying to try!

  30. February 16th, 2011 at 18:51 | #30

    I usually just eat the seeds but would try other things too if it was easier!

    I only eat seeds. I rarely eat pomegranate. I’m responding at wife’s request (she thinks this looks really cool)

    I just eat the burst in your mouth, jewel colored seeds! I couldnt find the tool in stores? But saw it in magazines and on Steven n Chris.

    Seeds alone are great! Like the juice too.

  35. February 19th, 2011 at 12:55 | #35

    Just the seeds ’cause once I’ve dug ‘em out I have to eat them right away!

    I love the seeds in anything from smoothies, muffins, popsicles, to martinis! As versatile as this little fruit may be, you can never go wrong when you just eat the tasty morsels on their very own either!

  37. February 20th, 2011 at 09:39 | #37

    The seeds are so delicious on their own I never make anything with it.. Just pop the seeds out and straight into my mouth.

  38. February 20th, 2011 at 11:45 | #38

    I have so far just eat the seeds. I use them in my plain yogurt or throw them into a salad or a smoothie.

    I usually only eat the seeds by themselves. When I bring a fruit platter to an event I often sprinkle them on top of the other fruit as decoration

    I eat the seeds by themselves and by myself. It’s such a pain to get all those seeds out it’s something I usually do late at night when nobody is around. If my husband or 5 children see me I may as well forget eating it. I spend the whole time getting it for them. I never knew about this world changing gaget. Amazing!

    I come from a middle eastern background so we eat a lot of hummus and baba-ganoush so I like to sprinkle some pomegranate seeds right on top. Not only does it taste great, it also makes the presentation even better. You should try it….. :-)

    I usually just eat the seeds only as I don’t know many recipes for pomegranates.

    I remember you tweeting about this tool ages ago. I only eat the seeds and would love something that makes it easier!

    Love pomegranates and I use them in my smoothies, in my oatmeal ( really like that) and just on their own.
    Kids love them too.

  46. February 27th, 2011 at 07:10 | #46

    I use the seeds in my salads- with candied almonds, baby spinach, and feta cheese. They are so yummy in salad!

    I love pomegranate! So it’s hard for me to actually use them in anything because as soon as I get my hands on those delicious seeds I eat them up! I have been know to sprinkle some seeds on a salad every now and then though.

  48. February 27th, 2011 at 07:46 | #48

    I love them – the first time I heard of it was when I was a camera assistant working on Egoyan’s film Ararat. It was a main story line for a character. Since then I eat them regularly – sometime just the seeds but generally I use them in salads or on top of curries!! I’ve even started giving teem to folks as gifts:)

    I usually just eat the seeds but I have recently discovered they make a welcome addition to salads! I love pomegranates!

  51. February 27th, 2011 at 12:04 | #51

    So we eat these all the time. I stand at the sink with two pomegranates cut in half, a large bowl filled with water and away I go. Placing the pomegranate in water makes it much easier to pluck out the seeds.
    They are a weekly snack for us.

  52. February 27th, 2011 at 12:32 | #52

    I mostly eat the seeds as they are. But, I occasionally add them into salad together with goat cheese. When I was a child, I made popsicles with citrus juice & the Pomegranate seeds (tasty & beautiful to look at!). While living in Japan, I never bought Pomegranates but picked some from neighbours’ gardens with permission. Once cutting the fruits into half, I used to eat the inside/seeds like eating an apple. I learned this from Japanese monkeys on TV (I was just a kid). :)

  53. November 7th, 2011 at 07:01 | #53

    I’m pretty new to eating fresh pomegranates. Haven’t made anything with them yet, but love eating the seeds.
