Yuuuum, pomegranates (also called gnasnberries by my group of friends...).
So you do or don't eat the white stuffy?
We (me and my insane friends) just stick one in the middle of our circle, and go wild with picking out the seedy red thingies!

I want your lungs to stop working without me.

My boyfriend and I once made a simple roast chicken, which turned out beautifully. The recipe called for fresh butter and mustard to slather onto it, along with some crusty bread, and as delicious as it was it felt like something was missing.

So, on a whim, we split open a pomegranate and nibbled on the seeds as we finished off our meal. Scrumptious!

use the seeds as a dressing over a salad made from chunks of watermelon, fetta cheese and red salad onion

My husband introduced me to this- After you get all the white pith off the seeds, place only the seeds in a cereal bowl with milk and white sugar- just a tsp or to taste. Eat like cereal. I was hesitant to try this, but it is very good!!!

Enjoy! Cheesy

I've never had a pomegranate, are they kind of like the consistancey of a passionfruit?

Not really.  Erm..the look kind of like God screwed up a raspberry and turned it inside out.  There is a peel part that is dark red, and inside is a white part (like an orange). Then inside that its like little raspberry bits (or orange bits depending on the anology you prefer Wink ), except they are like the size of a finger nail.  Each one is a seed (like a raspberry) and some people eat just the flesh around the seed and some people eat the whole thing. They are yummy, tart fruits but the taste is not really comprable to anything. The juice stains...

mmmmmmm I love them.  I've never eaten the seeds.  I just stick them in my mouth, eat the red gunk, and spit the seed out.

Haha, that sounds like too much work for me.

A really good way to get the fruits out is to tear apart your pomegranate in a big bowl of water:

- first barely cut through the skin in a couple of places on the fruit
- place in a big bowl of water and tear the pom apart
- just pluck at the fruits which will sink, and rub the white pith (which isn't eaten, kind of like the pith of an orange, bitter) and outer peel off of them- which will float.
- pour off or scoop out the peel and pith: throw them away, and pour your water with fruits into a strainer.

I like tossing pommegranates in spring rolls and guacamole (with a little bit of the juice too).

I take the seeds, gnaw off the juicy part, and either spit out or swallow the seeds. Crunching them seems unnatural to me O__o

a moment of silence, please, for those who never had the chance, they show up to a partybut they're never asked to dance, the losers, the liars, the bastards, the theives, the cynicists, the pessimists, and those who don't believe in nothing...
