Hmmmm. Pomegranate Margaritas. That would have been a good palliative for the failed beans.

Two words:

Pomegranate Margaritas!!!  [YUM!]

One of the ways to learn is by your mistakes. Tried making Boston baked beans in a slow cooker this weekend. Can you say "disaster?" Turns out, if you're going to cook dried beans for 8 hours on low. DO NOT do a soaking the night before. They've already absorbed the liquid, and won't take in any more. Overcooked beans in a rather tasty liquid. Live and learn.

Well, what's cooking, all you foodies?

My daughter made the most deliecious pork lasagna last night. The meat came from their farm after butchering 15 fat hogs, one weighing 320 lbs! Naturally, they're free range pigs.

I know high cholesterol is not a death sentence, we need it. But with pomegranate in our diet we stay healthy and keep the GP from prescribing unnecessary medicines.

I like the flavor of pomegranate. It was the trying effort put into getting the seeds out that turned me off.  Maybe mine wasn't ripe.

The more I read about cholesterol, the less stock I put into keeping it low. High cholesterol is not a death sentence--perhaps the opposite! As always, there are two sides to each issue.

Thanks for that information, Chris. I will have to start eating/drinking more of poms to see if I can get my cholesterol into a healthier range. 

Comment by Plinius on October 29, 2015 at 12:33am

We put a pomegranate in our daily smoothies, after my partner got a cholesterol warning. It works better than cholesterol medicines and it tastes better!

Randy, I love pomegranates. Sorry to learn you didn't enjoy them. Brussel sprouts on the stem taste wonderfully fresh and delightful. I grew them when the kids still lived at home and planted some in the new greenhouse. They attracted aphids creating a chore of giving them a shower every morning to get as many off as possible. Sadly, I used chemicals in those days. Let's hope sprouts grow up free of those pesky critters. 

When I had chemo and radiation, my dietician recommended pom juice as well as a lot of other new things for me. It was a treat finding new flavors.

When I was in Sacramento 10 days ago, we went to mammoth farmers market. I bought some delicious strawberries, a stalk of Brussels sprouts, and a pomegranate. As a first timer, I had no idea how to "prepare" or eat the pom. I didn't know one just ate the seeds. I wasn't impressed, and it'll be the last time I eat one.
