Associated with the Greek goddess Persephone, pomegranates were considered the “fruit of the dead” by the ancient Greeks. Don’t let this deter you from trying this beautiful fruit.
I am not one to buy all the new hype diets, so don’t think that I am posting about pomegranates because some “dietician” said pomegranates were good for you. I believe that any fresh fruit is good for you. This fruit is in season right now though and is a great option for a snack.
How to eat:
You eat the seeds of this fruit.
- Cut the fruit in eighths
- Bend the skin backwards so as to reveal all the seeds. The seeds are then easy to eat out of the fruit. Beware of the white pith – it is not good, very bitter.
Watch out for the juice. It can stain clothes, but will come out of skin pretty easily.
