place i lived in the early 2000s had a big old pomegranate tree that overhung the fence, all the poms i could eat in season. id scoop the seeds into a blender, run it with some water then strain out the result. adding some sugar helped, adding another sweet juice to it was better. also hanging over was a sweet lemon tree, sweet lemon juice was really the perfect companion.

Cutting board to protect your cutting board? F U d bag.
Watch further.... Ok solid job. I'll just keep buying that stuff cleaned up already because if I'm spending 4 bucks on a topping, 6 bucks to get the prepared version isn't that bad

Pomegranate is a very unusual stripper name, usually it's something like Aphrodite.

By definition they are not the same thing. One has five, one has six.

They both have more than 4 sides, they're both composed of lines and angles greater than a hundred degrees - 'pretty much' is one of the greatest weasel phrases ever invented

Pretty much, yeah.

I think this in regards to him saying the P is for pentagon but it's clearly a hexagonal shape; he then goes on to say that people who think it's a hexagon are wrong.  His pronunciation of 'pentagonal' is also stupid.

No a pentagon is when you want to get rid of the devil worshippers next door. A hexagon is what you use when said devil worshippers leave a hex on you for being a jerk neighbor.

She does a show alongside Persephone on the internet.

The Red Zone: Cutting board to protect your cutting board? F U d bag.


Okay, it's on par with the general humor from that channel, but I actually agree with him in principle.

If you're cutting up something that's likely to stain or contaminate your good wooden cutting board, use a plastic cutting board instead.

I have a bunch of those thin plastic 'cutting mats' that I use when I'm cutting up meat or beets.  Unfortunately, they're getting pretty beat up (luckily, I have a dishwasher to clean them well), but all of the new ones that I've gotten just suck.  Some were too thin (cut through one) and so slick they just slipped around the counter.  A slightly damp wooden cutting board held them better, but not great.

Every time I try to open a pomegranate I end up looking like I had viciously stabbed someone. I finally resorted to opening them up while submerging them in a bowl of water. Now it just looks like I gave a cat a bath - mostly wet t-shirt with some drops of red.

ng2810: Every time I try to open a pomegranate I end up looking like I had viciously stabbed someone.


OK, just last night I disassembled a pomegranate in a very ad-hoc manner and barely got any juice anywhere.  What I did was use a knife to make 2 0.5" deep and 1.5" long cuts in the fruit in an X.  Then slowly and carefully peel the flesh back, and remove the seeds with your fingers and put them into a container and put that container in the fridge.  When it becomes too difficult to peel the flesh back, make another cut or two.  When it's half-disassembled, there should be no more need to make any more cuts.  All I had to do for cleanup was rinse my hands off and wash the knife.

Please note, this may be specific to Arizona pomegranates.  Something like half of the pomegranates available in the USA are grown in Arizona, so the ones we have here may be riper and/or fresher than those available elsewhere.
