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!

Yay! That's how I made my festive Pomegranate salad for Christmas dinner! No stains, no mess.

Thanks for telling me that, this is all new. I'll do it now and let me know if it gets easier. Thanks.

I love having all those lovely seeds in one bowl!
