Pomegranates/ Ruby Tuesday

I confess that I DO shop at my local supermarket wearing my camera. No one hardly anyone ever stares any more.

When I saw these pomegranates I just had to take a couple of shots. Pomegranates say "holidays" to me, PLUS these are huge - 4 to 5 inches across, without word of a lie.



Yep, I bought one! And it tasted good too.

Have you finished started your holiday shopping yet?

That got me so interested... I admit I still haven't seen, touched, and tasted a pomegranate.

My Ruby Tuesday entries are posted here and here. Drop by if you have the time. Happy Tuesday!

As a kid I liked the taste of the juice and was willing to go along with all the work necessary.

Now the juice is all the rage and I buy it mixed with blueberry juice or cranberry juice. But I'm no longer willing to go through all falderal of eating the fruit.

We have completed our holiday (US Thanksgiving) shopping, although I think you meant the December holiday, of course...

Pomegranate juice seems to the latest sensation, being blended with apple and cranberry juices. Tart and sweet the taste seems. And a beautiful color. Happy Ruby Tuesday!

I love pomegranates, mmmm. Great shots!

Dora said...

Looks very juicy and sweet. We used to grow them when we were staying in a village. ;)

napaboaniya said...

I love the juicy pulp in pomegranates, but often found it a chore to savour :P I resorted to getting pomegranate juice instead..hahahhaa :)

Carletta said...

These are terrific - especially the inside shot! I've never had one though and your photo sures makes it look delicious.

Great Ruby Tuesday shot. I too carry my camera everywhere. Love Poms---I have one in the kitchen just waiting to be broken open. MB

I havnt seen these for years and now they are popular again, When I was a kid, the other kids used to use a pin to pull the seeds out of the fruit to eat them, is that still the way to eat them?

Terry said...

Oh Eg..I am so glad that I finally found you! I have been trying for days and just now I took the chance on clicking on to Cananda Wow over at the Teach's.
These pomegranates bring back so many memories to me.When I was a kid, they used to cost 15 cents for a half one. Mom Golden never had enough money to buy us any. One time a friend gave me one and oh how good they were...those little ruby seeds, so sweet and tasty!
Well, I will be back but I am very tired It is three thirty in the morning.
I want to look at your Canadian pictures. Have a nice week...Love Terry

Dirk said...

My wife loves pomegranates, nice pictures!

Catherine said...

Miam! (Here, we say Miam instead of Yum!) it's an invitation to taste. A fruit with so wonderful Ruby color is certainly delicious.
Thanks to share your dessert with us.
I, sometimes, took pictures at my local market, where a few people know me by sight. I came to the conclusion ; 'no matter!'

Ivanhoe said...

I don't believe I ever had a pomegranate before. maybe I should try it - looks realy tasty in your pictures :o)

Mediterranean kiwi said...

i confess that i do the same thing - and hardly anyone notices me either!

Rose said...

Beautiful shot! I have thought about taking my camera to the store before...I have wondered what would be said. But I always like shots like this.

Okay, the other thing--what does a pomegrante taste like? I have never sampled one.

Yen said...

I love this fruits!~ But I hardly can see them here and it's kinda expensive too:)

Nice shots!

Cheers,
Yen

Pomegranates are such an interesting fruit. I like the fruit/seeds though. Up close I think they look like rubies.
:-) I haven't eaten one in a while but remember stained fingers as a kid.

HI, about the Driftwood shores photo---that is on Camano Island which is a small (18miles long) island connected to Stanwood by the General Mark Clark Bridge. It is surrounded by salt water and is subject to the coming and goings of the tide. Driftwood Shores is on the east side of the island and that side gets more driftwood than the other and DS is in a cove which funnels the driftwood coming in and has no place to go. Does that make any sense? All the water in the Puget Sound area eventually started out in the Pacific Ocean. I took the picture on the road above the water and the view is looking towards stanwood (behind the hill). MB

see you there! said...

We shared one of those with our GD over the weekend.

Shopping? I have ONE present ready to wrap. What the heck there is almost a month to go.

onangelwings said...

They look so yummy. I may have to run out today and pick at least one up.

Dianne said...

I take my camera too ;)

and I get some looks, but I don't care.

pomegranates mean martinis to me!! lol

wonderful shots

babooshka said...

People stare at me, amd I am a photographer. These are mouthwatering images, sharp and vivid.

Jan said...

Great photos, yes I take my camera to the grocery store, I take it every where. Pomegranates are great subjects. I'm almost done with Christmas shopping, I've worked in retail for almost 20 years and learned to do it early and simply.

Rambling Round said...

These pomegranates look so good, but we used to eat the seeds, and I recall them as tasting sour.
No...to finishing Christmas shopping. I've barely begun.

tr3nta said...

yummy I love those...

maryt/theteach said...

Hubby and I bought a pomegranate yesterday to bring to Thanksgiving dinner, some wine, and other fruit too! Your pomegranates DO look delicious, EG! Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours! :)

Becky and Gary said...

After I read this post we went shopping this morning, and they had a basket of these as you first enter the produce dept. I have never eaten a Pomegranate before, but I'm looking forward to it now.
Have a happy day.

Luiz Ramos said...

Beautiful pomegranate shot and color.

PERBS said...

I love pomegrantes but they are only around for a little while. When I lived in Hawaii, I had a Pomegrante tree right outside my front door!

I have eaten 11 ao far this season and have three more ready to go when I feel the urge to enjoy. . . They are expensive but I enjoy this luxury during the late Fall.

Yours look so yummy that I think I will go have another one!
