pomegranate season is ending.
oh i am sad.
for the last 3 months these delicious seeds have brightened up my cereal in taste and color
i am hoarding them now.
you can keep them in the fridge for a month or more.
and do you know the easiest way to decant the seeds?
cut in half
tap the outside edge with the back of a wooden spoon and presto the seeds tumble out into your bowl - tip courtesy nigella lawson.
and persephone
do you know that story+
6 pomegranates and doomed to hades for 1/2 the year - hence the dark winter -

But the end of pomegranate season means
that spring is on the way.

Another new year resolution, (which has been on my list for years now)
read Edith Hamilton's Mythology.
I read D'Auliers Book of Greek Myths to Miss Is as a little girl
and we read another book, Classic Myths to Read Aloud by William Russell
and we listened to myths on tape...
Perfect background for understanding all the references in her english, history and art history classes - As a student, my knowledge of mythology was sorely lacking...but there is always room to grow.

So funny that you show that book of myths...my 3rd grade daughter loves to read that book too!
