Expert Tips

  • You can assemble this trifle early in the day or even the night before; cover and refrigerate until serving. Or the components for the trifle can be prepared a day or two in advance and assembled the day of.
  • The aril is simply the seed pod inside a pomegranate. The clear, ruby-coloured fruit surrounds a tiny, crisp seed, and the whole aril is edible.
