H.E.B. had a bunch of pomegranates on sale in December so I picked one up out of curiousity. Back at home I jabbed into the rind a few times with a spoon and ended up with the above. It’s a beautiful fruit on the inside — snugly packed with seeds that resembled crosses between alien podlings and blood-red bath beads — and I had a much more enjoyable time pulling apart than I did actually tasting it (not that it tasted bad). Normal people make jellies with pomegranates, I gather. I just picked out and ate a bunch of the tangy podlings raw, making a little bit of a mess in the process.
Now I have a quince in my fridge and I’m holding back on reading anything about it online until I get a chance to play with it myself. What mysteries may be contained within…
