This is Jake's favorite time of the year. Sure, there's the whole Christmas thing. But food-wise, it's the season for one of his favorite foods: Pomegranates!
These fruits are available around this time of year and it's worth the wait. When really ripe, they are a little sweet and a little tart, crunchy, incredibly nutritious and very versatile. They're as good on ice cream as they are on a salad or with roasted meat. Jake (and I) think they're best simply popping them in your mouth.
But if you're not familiar with a pom, it can be a bit intimidating. So I'm here to help. Here's how to pick out and get the seeds from a pomegranate without any stress.
So, are you going to try a pomegranate now? Go ahead. You'll be glad you did. A little work is involved, but it's worth it--and it's actually kind of fun!
