I love pomegranates. Not in the add-a-few-seeds-to-a-salad type of way, but more like a rush-through-dinner-nearly-choking-on-my-food-so-I-can-consume-a-few type of way. Hold on, it gets weirder. I’ve met many people who like pomegranates and I always tend to ask these people the same question: “How do you eat them?”. Now, I have to admit I’ve spent some time pondering whether I actually want to disclose how I eat them, but after that whole eggplant-plum fiasco, I figured it can only go up from there. So here goes…I cut them into slices, peel back the white skin, and bite into it like an orange. Sounds boring? Well let me elaborate by adding the fact that due to the nature of the pom, I create a diy bib made out of paper towels, resembling those crab shacks bibs but on a much lower budget. And despite my attempts to remain clean and dainty, I end up looking like a 2-year-old who has fallen into a bucket of red paint face first, as I politely remind my husband that he married me “for better or worse”, as he glances at me with sheer panic.
And here it is:
You didn’t actually think I’d post a picture of me in the tragic state described above, did you?
So, of course, I’d now like to know…how do you eat them?!
