In the Kitchen is where you will find all my recipes and adapted recipes, tried, tested, and eaten.

I’ve decided that pomegranates are the fruit equivalent of someone playing hard to get. “You want me? Well then you’re gonna have to work for it.” Cos let me tell you, it takes me a good 20 minutes to completely de-seed a pomegranate and halfway through I’m always like, seriously, is this really worth it? (Spoiler alert: It is.) Unfortunately, I have to go a bit light on the pomegranate consumption due to some health issues, but for those of you who can indulge in as many of these bad boys as possible, I say, do it.


5 ways to enjoy this gem of a fruit:

001: Add to your morning porridge
002: Add to your favorite yogurt (soy for vegetarians/vegans/lactose-intolerant)
003: In a salad
004: As a topping for your favorite lunch (recipe coming up on LFB soon!)
005: Or just on their own as a snack.

  • Nom Nom!! This looks so good ☺


  • Lisi Ledbetter

    mmh – in a salad sounds wonderful! but it’s great to hear I’m not the only one struggling to de-seed that little f*cker. there must be some kind of trick to it.. after all, there’s a youtube-tutorial for everything somewhere!

    • rae

      Yeah, it’s always a huge task LOL. I think there probably is, and you are right, if anyone has the answer, it’s definitely got to be youtube!

  • completely setting the taste aside, your photos make it look so delicious! i’m generally too lazy to spend the 10 minutes tapping and tearing the seeds out but i do love it in salads when i happen to have it around. :)

  • Aah haha that’s why I never eat pomegranate, it’s just so much effort.

    • rae

    The closest I got to a promegranate is to the body scrub scented ones! I’m always afraid how sour it might taste! I might give it a shot at trying them one day :)

    Love your photos!


    • rae

      It’s not sour at all! Quite sweet actually!

  • Ane

    mmmmmm It looks yuuuuumy!! xoxo

  • I actually have not idea how the pomegranate tastes, since I’ve never eaten it before haha. I do love the smell of products with pomegranate in it tho. I’m always fascinated by this fruit, the colours are so rich and it just looks like some sort of gem

  • haha…it’s so true. You really have to work on getting to enjoy this fruit!


    • rae

      I can’t think of any other fruit that takes so much work to eat!

  • mmm….I love pomegranates, but I eat them so rarely because they’re so hard to find here. I love to cover pomegranates in chocolates and when they harden, I eat them! Just yummy!

    • rae

      Love pomjuice too, but you should def. try the seeds in salads and other things.

  • I love pomegranates in salad but weirdly I’ve never added them to anything sweet before, I really want to try them with yogurt :) xx

      Thanks, Eloise!

  • i love pomegranate but i always have trouble de-seeding. i once did a hack job and had the juices squirt all over me. it wasn’t fun but man they are good :)

    • rae

      LOL! Yes if not cut correctly, that juice goes EVERYWHERE.

  • Nancy Wilde

    Can’t I buy those beauties ready? Ahah! I love pomegranate AND duck in a salad.

    • rae

      Pomegranates really taste good with almost anything, I have found!

  • That fruit is definitely worth it! I usually just eat it as a snack while I watch TV or something, but I’ve also had it in my salad. I never thought about adding it to my yogurt though. That’ll be my next experiment haha.
