Today while I was feeding the chickens, I noticed that we had a pomegranate split while on the tree. That is usually how I know they are ripe enough to pick.
I had a lot going on today, but I was able to quickly run out and pick them all.
We ended up with 56 pomegranates this year. I believe we had around 20 last year.
Many of them are quite large. I had my nine year old hold a couple near his head to see the size of them.
We have already juiced some of them to use in baking. We are going to make white cupcakes with pomegranate Buttercream frosting and chocolate Bundt cake with pomegranate juice in it.
Pomegranates are very messy when being juiced, and now parts of our kitchen looks like someone has been bleeding there.
We will try to get some cupcake pictures posted later.
