Juice them, sprinkle them. Pomegranate time.

2 mins read

For the past four seasons, I have been traveling so not had the luxury of picking fruit from my garden. My pomegranate tree is laden with fruit so I thought I had better spend some time harvesting the fruit.

I am not a great cook, so please do not expect the latest pomegranate recipes. basically, I mostly add them to my salads. In India, I used to order a veggie burger with BBQ sauce. They topped it with juicy pomegranate seeds. I know, sounds a weird combination but it became one of my favorite choices.

I may not know how to get those sneaky little pips out of the pith, popping them over my worktop and onto the floor. However, I do know that there is goodness in them and I want the benefit. So the birds are not getting all of them this year.

As I pop, I decide to freeze them, Yes, ‘You tube’ says I can do that and all is going well. I think, wouldn’t this be a wonderful activity for me to share with my granddaughter? When I lived in France, a few friends and I used to get together and make chutneys and jams. I was never skilled at it but I used to enjoy the natter around the table as we shared washing, peeling, and chopping. If anyone wants to pop in and help yourself so long as you stop for a coffee, you will be welcome.

Freeze them for up to a year.

I feel so grateful I can do this. There is nothing like preparing food that has grown from your garden. No processing with chemicals, no pesticides, just a gift from Mother Nature.

Let me know what you do with your pomegranates, I need educating.
