Ruby’s in The Fridge
The best thing about this time of year in my opinion is the pomegranates. I love putting them in and on everything I eat. I saw a great way to remove the seeds while watching Good Eats with Alton Brown and thought want a fun thing for your kids to do to help make an easy snack for themselves to keep the fridge.
Large bowl or bucket of water
Cookie sheet lined with paper towels
First cut the pomegranates in half. Cover the floor or table with newspaper of old towels that you wouldn’t mind getting stained. Place a bowl or bucket of water on the ground and put the pomegranates half’s in the water. With your fingers gently push the seeds out of the fruit. The seeds will sink to the bottom of the bowl and the waxy yellow casing will float and the best part you wont even stain your fingers. Once all the seeds are out, either scoop out the waxy yellow casing with your fingers or with a strainer. Poor the seeds and water out into a strainer and transfer the wet seeds onto the paper towel lined cookie sheet. Allow to dry before placing them into a container with a good lid. In the fridge you can keep these for weeks, if they last that long. Enjoy in salads, yogurt and my favorite cottage cheese.
Do the pomegranate seeds look like anything else that we have around the house this time of year? Christmas lights or maybe even Rudolf’s nose?
