Pomegranates

In the autumn of each year, I buy a pomegranate. Pomegranates are beautiful, all crimson and crowned. And they taste great - sweet, tart, and refreshing - and are supposed to be very healthful. As an NPR report puts it, "Scientists say the leathery-skinned, orange-sized fruit with the sweet-tart juice may help with heart disease, cancer and problems associated with aging. It's loaded with antioxidants, vitamins, potassium, folic acid and iron. Pomegranates are the new superfood."

But eventually, each year, my pomegranate experience goes bad when I try to peel it and end up red-stained and saddened by how difficult it is to get at the fruit. But this year may be different. I came across pomegranate-peeling instructions from the CDC
that look crazy enough they just might work.
