Pomegranate Orange Scones

I really had been wanting to get a pomegranate ever since I saw a video on how to properly cut them open and eat them. The only other time that I've actually had one was in grade school when a teacher brought one in for everyone to try. I don't actually remember the taste of it at all but I was convinced that I would love it. And you know, it was pretty good, but I could only eat a few of the seeds before I didn't want anymore. So I had to find something to do with them, so of course I turned to Pinterest and found this recipe. And it was amazing! I think that it is my favorite scone recipe ever. I don't know how often I'll actually make this since pomegranates are kind of expensive, but I definitely will add orange to the next one.
