The Magical Fruit


I’ve always found pomegranate as the symbol of fruitfulness. Isn’t it so magical? Who can imagine that there are plenty of precious seeds in this dull looking fruit as a whole? I used to love playing with these red ‘beads’ as a little child. Mom says that she was fed up with working on hard to remove stains on my clothes. Believe or not, I used to love the color of its stain too!

Some people may find it difficult to eat pomegranate, they even need a tool for this. Not true for me! I just divide the whole fruit into four and gnaw them one by one holding a large bowl under my chin. Does it sound disgusting? But I love feeling the sound they make in my mouth and the sourish flavor even if its juice flows down on my hands. And I absolutely love to use these fantastic seeds to garnish dishes. You can see examples in the following links:
