Since I was in a gracious spirit, I made these Cornmeal, Pomegranate, and Sage Muffins with Thanksgiving flavors in mind. The cornmeal base is for the steaming dish of yellow corn on our festive tables, the pomegranate (a juicer substitute for cranberries) are for the turkey’s tart sidekick, and the sage is for the stuffing whose fragrance fills the kitchen. And, because some of us over-indulge during the holidays, I made these muffins mini-sized for a more manageable bite!
Cornmeal, Pomegranate, & Sage Muffins
Makes about 36 mini muffins
1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
2. Mix flour, cornmeal, baking powder, and sage.
3. Beat together oil, egg, and sugar.
4. Make a well in the dry mix and add half of the milk. Stir gently, just until the flour is slightly wet. Then, add half of the wet mix and stir slightly. Repeat until milk and wet mix are both combined with the dry mix. Batter should be lumpy.
5. Fold in pomegranate seeds.
6. Fill muffin cups about 2/3 of the way with batter. Bake for 8-10 minutes.

Sound delicous! Would it work with using Jiffy corn muffin mix?
Jenn, totally! I would imagine you could just follow the box’s directions and add in the sage and pomegranates right before pouring the batter into the muffin tin. Quick and easy. (I guess that’s why they call it “Jiffy.”) 😉
This sounds SO good. I don’t have a particularly good track record with muffins, but this sounds like it could turn out well!
Sounds yummy! is the sage dried or fresh?
Missy, I used dried, ground sage. I think that if you use fresh, then you might want to use 1 or 1 1/2 teaspoons. Unless, that is, you like sage a lot!
Oof, I love all three of these major flavors/ingredients, especially pomegranate. Am going to see if I can wrangle any of my kitchen-savy friends into making this.
