Just satiating a curiosity.  I was wondering what tasted better.  The juice in a bottle or a fresh Pomegranate.

 

My wife was so kind to buy me one earlier in the week.  I let it sit out for 4 days to ripen a bit and cut into it this morning!

 

TASTY.

 

WHAT A MESS!

 

Wow, this is one messy fruit.  Don't go eating these with your best WHITES on!  :lol:

 

Yes, it is much tastier than the stuff in the bottle.  

 

Enough to go through this procedure and mess?  NO

 

Would I eat one fresh again?  Probably not.  Don't see enough of a difference to make me want to do this again.  It really does make a huge mess.  Tough to contain because the little seeds squirt everywhere.

 

Makes for nice pictures though! And, that is all that counts.

 

:lol:

I bought a couple once, it was so much trouble I went with the juice after that. I'll gladly pay someone else to do the hard work with those things..


Nikon D-3300 18-55 VRII, 1971 Nikkor 135mm Q-Auto, Tamron 70-300 AF. Not much! But I'm working on mastering what I do have.

It is winter and we must find new pursuits.  They make nice pictures at the least.

My daughter has a couple trees. She gave me some to try earlier this Fall. Didn't work out well. They're coming to me in bottle form from now on.

Ron,

 

There is an art to cutting them open.

 

YouTUBE is the only way to go before attempting this.  You need to cut the top off first, then slice down the veins, that are very prominent.  It just falls apart from there, nice and clean.  As you most likely know, you want to avoid those squirting seeds like the plague!!
