My favorite pomegranates

I love pomegranate seeds. I love them plain, eating seed by seed as a snack; I love them in my pomegranate martinis. I use them in recipes, and I just plainly love to look at them. Growing up it was my favorite snack when they were in season. My sister and I would usually each eat a whole pomegranate every day while reading books, for example. Not surprisingly, the pages of those books had a lot of red stains. These days, I browse internet while eating pomegranates, and it’s definitely easier to clean a laptop from red pomegranate juice splatter than to clean book’s white pages.

      They do splatter and stain – I used to read books when I was a child while eating pomegranates. You can imagine what those books looked like … 🙂

    What lovely photos! They really do justice to the color of pomegranates. I use pomegranate scented perfume this time of year and just love the fragrance – so strong and full of passion.

      Wow, a pomegranate perfume! I never even thought those existed. That must be interesting – I have to look it up! I love everything pomegranate: from eating them plain to using them in martinis or food.

        It’s Midnight Pomegranate from Bath and Body Works. There’s also a nice pomegranate body wash in the Philosophy line (I think you can get that at Sephora). It’s a nice winter fragrance.

          I will definitely check it out. Thank you! 🙂

    Sometimes I just eat pomegranates because they’re so healthy, but last night I had the best pomegranate ever. I could have just kept eating it. Now I’m craving more.

      I LOVE how they taste. They are really sweet and tart at the same time – my favorite flavor. I also love real sour cherries from a real tree (not from a can).
