As always, pictures are from the internet, quotes/sayings are by me.
I had a family birthday (not mine) at the weekend, and my family had sprinkled pomegranate on the top and in the middle of the sponge cake.
|It looked sort of like this, before all the paper pineapples & parasols were added by younger members of the family to cover the entire cake!|
This was a big coincidence as I'd ordered pomegranate in my organic delivery order which arrived before the weekend.
I only used it after the weekend, as I didn't have time to prepare it before then.
|Thursday through to Saturday evening was busy at work & at home wrapping presents/spending time with family etc there wasn't a lot of time to do this.|
So what did I do with my pomegranate?
|"Want to know what I'm making?"|
I took out the seeds, which takes an age. There's probably a knack to doing it, I just cut it in half and scooped/bashed the seeds out with a spoon & my fingers. And then...
|"Hurry up & tell us already!"|
....I popped them in my smoothies! Half per smoothie (& they kept til the next day when I whizzed the second smoothie for work).
|Mine looked green thanks to the spinach|
The pomegranate added a refreshing taste to the spinach, radish and orange combo - hope to have them again sometime! I hope you like pomegranate - give it a go, it's not that difficult to get the seeds out. You can probably find them in pre-made salads, which are delicious!
|"Go on, try pomegranate in your food - it's delicious!"|
