Today I'm saying thanks for the sudden inspiration that struck at the farmer's market and led me to buy my first pomegranate.
They looked so fun and festive, and I showed up at the farmer's market only fifteen minutes before close, so they were half off. Seventy-five cents later, this "many-chambered globular fruit" (thank you dictionary.com) came home with me.
Look how pretty.
Turns out the fresh seeds are as weirdly delightful as the dried variety.
Such a festive fruit...hurrah for pomegranates!
