Winter is the season for pomegranates.  The juicy, ruby arils have a rich satisfying flavour, but they do take a bit of work to get them out of the skin.  Some people like to wack them out with a spoon, but I like a quieter technique.  I slice the ends off the fruit, then cut the fruit into one inch slices. I break the outer edge of a circle piece and open out the slice.  Then, it's easy to gently pick off the arils. Five minutes later, all the arils are in a glass or bowl ready for eating.

It's easier to be shocked and horrified by the darkness of others , than to do the scary, uncomfortable work of checking for darkness in our own hearts.

    I use the spoon whacking technique. Cathartic!
