Pomegranates/Christmas fruit

Pomegranates are beautiful dark pink or red fruits. I’ve always thought they were hard to eat until this weekend when my friend Barbara Johnson showed me how to get into them. You can’t eat the outside skin but inside they are filled with these little seeds called arils. This is what you eat. Each aril surprisingly not only has fiber but vitamin D and C and potassium. You can eat them just as there are or add to your fruit salad or tossed salad or on top of your yogurt or cottage cheese. My sister, Rose Carol, tops her ice cream and sherbet with these seeds and the sweet and tart together make a perfect pair. So don’t be afraid. Go buy one and cut off each end then slice like you would a grapefruit. To think all these years I’ve only gotten to eaten them when my sister prepared them for me!

  1. They are the perfect Christmas fruit! They are growing in people’s yards all over the place here. My sons used to pick them on their way home from school when they were young and we would enjoy eating them so much.
