When I saw the pomegranates on sale for $1, I realized my kids had never even tried one.
When I was a kid, I looked forward to Halloween each year, not for the candy, but for the one house in the neighborhood who passed out pomegranates from their tree.
It was probably the only one I got during the entire year based on their unease of consumption and their stainability.

Princess was excited to try it, but Pumpkin proclaimed:
“You’d better not eat those seeds because if you do, plants will grow out of your ears.”

We have a pomegranate tree and I think Next year I might hand out pomegranates to the trick or treaters – our tree produces am immense amount of fruit. Good idea!

My daughters tried them for the first time this year too. The oldest loved it and the younger one hated itm

We all tried them for the first time this year too—what a great treat! A bit labor intensive–rather like picking crabs—but well worth it. :-)

I pull mine apart in a bowl of water. It keeps your fingers from being stained. Cut off the "crown" of the pomegranate. Then cut the fruit into 4th but don't cut clear through the base. Place upside down in a bowl of cool water while you remove the seeds. The seeds sink, and the pulp floats. Strain the pulp off the water and drain. Easiest way I've found to eat a pomegranate!
