Good Friends - worth their weight in gold!

I went for dinner with my friend Shehnaz at the weekend and had a lovely time - loads of gossip, laughs and spiritual chit chat. Then right as we were about to leave she asked me if I ate pomegranates!! Then she asked me how I eat them!! With some difficulty - like everyone else I thought.

But she had bought me one for a present and right there in the restaurant [lovely Turkish one] she got out a kitchen knife and showed me how she was taught to peel and break them in India - then she gave it to me [the pomegranate not the knife]. The pomegranate tree of knowledge was my old school emblem - and I do love them. In return I told her the story of Persephone - not much of a return but still....

I could have used t hat lesson, and before this never realized the tree shape inside a pomegranate. My mom mailed me two pomegranates recently when I told her I had not had one in over ten years.

Re: Pomegranates
It was interesting - mind you I'm not convinced I'll be able to do it myself - easier said than done I fear!
