Whiplash Wednesday, pomegranates
I can't tell you how much I love pomegranates! It's not something I grew-up with, it's one of those things you discover when you move away from home, like to the other side of the country. These tiny bitter-sweet seeds pack a healthy, powerful punch.
For those of you who don't know...this fruit grows on a VERY spiny bush. When we lived in California our neighbors planted them under their windows for extra protection.
The one thing I can't stand about this fruit are the stained fingers, counter tops, and shirts it marks with tiny red droplets.
My whiplash moment came when I discovered an easier way to love these round, ruby globes.
1. cut in half
2. soak in a big bowl of water
3. flip the seeds out
4. drain and enjoy
Now go ahead and whip it good!
