Welcome to my blog "aboud the world with matty". I'm Matty and I'm inspired by the continent boxes I found all over the internet. I started filling my own personal boxes and i'm collecting all kinds of stuff.
First of all, excuse me if my english isn't all perfect but i'm a dutch girl. I'm doing this blog in english because it's about such a international subject and I like to share it with lots of people.

I will post things about my continent boxes, about DIY activities and food from all over the world so you can experiance the world from your living room or kitchen together with your kids.

Fruit: Pomegranate

So, in the next 10 weeks I will be eating a new piece of fruit. I will choose fruit that is exotic in The Netherlands and that I have never eaten.
 
Today I'll tell you about the pomegranate. Pomegranates are origianlly from Iran (Persia). Now a days it's widely cultivated throughout the Mediteranean eara (Southern Europe, Northern Africa, Middle East) and further.
 
Last week when shopping groseries I walked through the fruit and vegetables corner and noticed there was only one pomegranate left. It wasn't to expencive so I placed it in my shopping basket.
I had pomegranate once before, on a holiday in Egypt. I liked the sour taste and the little bite because of the seed in it.
 


Arriving home I settled down at my table to find out how to 'open' the pomegranate. Using a small sharp knife I cut out a quarter, but only cutting through the 'skin'. Then I pulled the piece open.
I pealed the seeds out and so I peeled the whole pomegranate.




Tasting the seeds they seemed less sour than they were in my memories. I was wondering how to eat them and looked for some recipies. I found one with couscous and decited to make couscous for dinner later that day. Till then I put the seeds in the fridge.

When eating the seeds with the couscous the seeds tasted like i remembered, sweet but sour and I liked it.

 
What do you like about the pomegranate? Tell me.
