I followed the recipe as written, with one exception. Because we don't like seedy foods, I tried pureeing the compote in a food processor. I should have strained the puree, because it remained very seedy.

Rich, creamy, vanilla bean-flecked pudding tempers the tart-sweet pomegranate compote. Pick out small, festive glass dessert dishes for this pretty parfait.
