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.
