How to Seed a Pomegranate

Blog Post 1000

Today is my 1000th blog post!  I am rather excited by the great magnitude of that number. It is a big bowl full of happy to know not only that I have shared with you 1000 times. But, that many of you have been reading what I have shared 1000 times! It is also a sweet surprise that this milestone is happening on Christmas week. ♥ During the holidays a lot of us are enjoying the delicious Christmas fruit, pomegranate. I used to eat a lot of these when I was young and I would have bright red stained fingers to prove it. Today I am sharing  how I prepare a pomegranate for eating.

I like to eat the seeds by the spoonful. But, they are also a nice addition to yogurt, ice cream and to a green salad too.

    Congratulations on your 1000th posts. Wishing you many more to come of which I’m looking forward to seeing.
    I have never ever eaten a pomegranate. Probably because I always assumed that they are messy and can stain your clothing so just never messed with them but I may give it a try after seeing from your photos just how easy it is to deseed one.
    Wishing you and your family a Very Merry Christmas
