...."P" for pomegranates, that is. Let's hear it for Pomegranates!!!




A few weeks ago, I could NOT wait any longer!!! I remember asking here when the time is 'ripe' for picking...some said, "NOW" while others say, "Nope, wait longer." This is only the first year for our pomegranate tree to be planted and surprisingly we had it bare fruit the first season. I so love these. Being that they are very expensive per fruit in our stores here in Texas, with the ones that I just picked, it has already paid for itself!! Seriously. And the juices just flowed!! The flavor is unbeatable. The thing that tops it all off, I love 'em and they're good for me!! Unlike my love of cheeseburgers, y'know? Delicious!

  1. I have never had a pomegranate! It's not something you see around here, but I'll have to look in the produce section for the unusual fruits and veggies. I really should try one!

  3. Woo hoo Anni! We're in on Ruby Tuesday just after you. Love your edible red week photos! Wow! growing your own pomegranates. Our motto is to only plant edibles but I don't think they grow in NC. I'll have to look in to that!

  5. Ok, I'm curious. What do you do with them? I mean, do you have a special recipe? Please share! I've never had a pomegranate.
    Love your header, BTW! Eating more pie is NOT a problem! LOL

  8. Empty Nester You eat only the seeds...not the fibrous outer layer!! I've only known the fresh, from the fruit seed eating...other than that, juice can be made...and I've drank that also...so very delicious and tart!! As for recipes, I don't have a clue. Just eat it fresh.

  12. Wow Anni, it paid for all the work huh! That's why I love to plant fruit trees because it excites me when they bear fruit. And you are blessed that in the first season it gave you sweet and juicy fruit. And yes this fruit is expensive too!

  15. I love these, too, and ate a lot of them as a teen. Haven't had one in waaay too long. Ummm, these look so pretty, too.

    I finally realized what you meant by Blogging Over 50 button wouldn't work after April. I thought you meant ONLY that button..I see now that it is all links to other blogs on our blogroll. I also understand that they are working on the problem and hope to have it up and running without a hitch soon, if it IS taken down.

  22. Hi Anni....I just learned to love them last year. My s-i-l had a bowl full on the table at our Christmas supper....delicious.

    Heads up..This Thursday Madi and I are participating in 'The Story of Me' sponsored by a Doxie Friend in honor of her Gotcha Day.
    We'll be back on board the Thursday Theme Song the following week.

    Happy Thanksgiving...we're celebrating T-giving tomorrow night. I'll be busy as a cat in a room full of rocking chairs tomorrow. Our daughter and hubby will be with his family on Thursday.
    Hugs Madi and Mom
