I only have about half a dozen fruit on my tree, nothing like my second-youngest uncle's pomegranate trees.
I thought eating pomegranates were rather self-explanatory, but I guess not. Twice now I've seen people trying to eat this with a spoon. Well, you can, but usually after you've removed the seeds from the peel.
Just make a small slice into the side so you don't cut into the whole fruit and spill all that lovely antioxidant juice. Then split in half like so. Then just section and peel off the seeds into a bowl, toss away the thin membranes and outer peel. I've seen some people peel pomegranates into a bowl of water, but that wastes too much of the precious juice for me.
Until you have a gorgeous pile of jewel-like seeds.
Then you can eat this with a spoon.
Last year's pomegranates.
And my favorite recipe for pomegranates -- Fessenjan (Persian Walnut-Pomegranate Glaze with Roast Duck).
1 year ago today, the first time I fell in love with Bollini's Pizzeria Napolitana - Monterey Park.
