Brussels Sprouts with Pomegranates

It is pomegranate season and if you are like some of us here at Chow Bella maybe you have neighbors with overflowing pomegranate trees. If they are friendly then by all means ask but a little late night neighborhood walk is totally acceptable in this beautiful fall weather and if you happen to pick a few pomegranates up that you saw fall on the ground then hey, who is to know the difference?

Now you can head right home and bust it open and snack on a bowl in bed, like Martha does or you can practice a little patience and make a delicious dish with them. Why not try them with Brussels Sprouts? This is a perfect thanksgiving side dish try it.
