A little reminder to fans - pomegranates are in season! Look at the amount of seeds that came from one the other night; they were delicious.
I found a really easy and clean way to peel them without staining everything in sight and picking up seeds from across the room.
- Cut off the blossom end of the pomegranate, without cutting through the seeds.
- Make 4 or 5 slices through the skin and into the white part, from nearly top to bottom.
- Soak the pomegranate in a bowl of water, with enough water to cover it.
- After 5 minutes of soaking, keeping the fruit under the water, pull away the peel at the cuts you made. The whole thing will come apart easily and most of the seeds will fall into the water. You can push the rest of them out while it's still under water. Drain, dry, and they'll stay fresh for a day or two covered and in the fridge.
Remember this recent blog picture of the woods right out the back door?
Same view, this morning. Lot of leaves down! Still looks inviting though.
