We have just picked our first pomegranate, or rather it fell off the bush, so TB decided it was time to use it.
We weren’t quite sure how ripe the fruit would be, it certainly wasn’t the size of your average commercially grown pomegranate. However when we cut it open that hot pink juice came flowing out.
TB found the fallen fruit when he was collecting lemons to make a lemon syrup cake. It didn’t take much for him to decide to add the pomegranate to the drizzling syrup. The taste was good but the seeds turned out to be hard and not very pleasant to eat. So in the end he strained them from the final syrup.
