I have ruined a few things from opening up a pomegranate but it doesn't stop me enjoying one. The juicer they are, the more trouble they are.
Anyways, as far as the challenge, it wasn't enough to just get one open and call it a day, so I found a recipe that didn't require much in terms of preparation or extra ingredients. I also figured, it is getting close to family food gatherings so I better see what I can prepare to satisfy even the most picky of tasters.
For this pomegranate relish, it took only a shallot and some cilantro to add an extra boost of flavor to the pomegranate. It also was a relatively quick dish to "cook" once all the pomegranate was extracted from the fruit itself.
Hopefully the challenges for the remainder of the year will be one of less mess. Fortunately, the mess of this dish was minimal since the pomegranate was just under full ripeness and wasn't too juicy.
