pomegranate

tristan and kassi both love pomegranate. tis the season. not unlike asparagus, pomegranate has a brief seasonal window. as a kid i worked in the local grocery market. the guy in charge of the produce was openly suicidal but more importantly had excellent taste in produce. at the ripe age of sixteen i was turned on to these delicious fruit and their subtle nuances. if you have never had a good one or never had one at all. go to the closest market that will have them and find the heaviest one. the skin must seem fresh and plump. take a sharp knife and cut both ends off just cutting some of the seeds in half. then slice the skin as if to quarter it--but only slice the skin. then using both hands break it open and eat everything that is bright burgundy red as quickly as you can. tart, sweet, delicious. if it is your first time, i envy you. do something wonderful with your kids because it will make an indelible mark on your memory--and hands.

happy eating...
