November - National Pomegranate Month!

Poms are known in arabic as "Rumm aan" and they're one of my favourite things in the whole wide world.
A lot of people find cleaning them to be a chore but I've always loved and enjoyed this task. The fruit is so amazing with all it's chambers and membranes inside, it's just fun to snap the little seeds off and hear them falling into the bowl. Before my sisters and I could dig in we'd sprinkle them with a bit of salt then just eat it all up with a spoon. Yummy!

It's national pomegranate month, yay! Love seeing all those pomegranates in the stores for such a good price, since normally they are rather expensive here in the west. Pom seeds are great on rice as a garnish, make a nice sour burst of flavour in a salad, or just a healthy antioxidant packed snack!! So many ways to enjoy..
