Around here, this is the only time of year we can get these delicious fruits. Now, I am not a big fruit eater, other than apples. But I love the little clementines. Just enough for a snack. Wet and juicy. And fun to tuck into someones gift basket for the holiday. Plus you can save that plastic netting to use in crafts.
And pomegranates. These were two for three dollars and well worth it. I first read about the healing benefits of pomegranates on Paris Breakfasts' blog. But I forgot about them this year until I saw a post on Britt-arnhild's blog showing a dish of yogurt with pomegranate seeds on top. These too would make an elegant, though somewhat larger gift basket addition. Here is the California pomegranate growers web site where they tell you an easy way to remove the pips.
