Pomegranates

The other day I cut open a pomegranate for a salad I was making, and my six-year-old gasped.  Apparently he’s never seen a pomegranate before and he was so intrigued! Before long there was a feeding frenzy of three children ripping apart the pomegranate trying to pick the seeds — all three kids loved them. We then pressed the seeds in a sieve and made juice… which they also loved. Who knew? Apparently pomegranates are really good for you, filled with vitamin C and loads of antioxidant properties. I think I’ll be buying more pomegranates from now on.  Does anyone have a great recipe which includes them? I was thinking of making ice lollies from the juice! I’ll let you know how that goes…

So funny, I picked up a Pomegranate yesterday. Violette could not get enough… Love to hear how the ice lollies go!

Read in a Jamie Oliver Cookbook that kids love to eat them with a toothpick! Keep them busy for a while!

They are not only gorgeous fruits, but delicious too. As a child I had a dog, who loved them-who could have known?

I love pomegranate seeds too. Have you tried them in a salad? One of my favourite ways to eat them! They make the salads look so pretty too!

The easiest and least messy way to get the seeds free is to submerge the pomegranate in a bowl of water while you pick the seeds free. The seeds sink and the pulp floats and you don’t get red stained everything!
