WPC: Well rounded

I might have had this post almost ready before I even saw this week’s WPC theme, but there is something rounded on every photo so it more than fits.

After having missed out on the challenge twice for no good reason, I had a glance at this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge theme that has been just announced. Any which way I look, the roundness is definitely present. It’s the season.

While waiting for “pasta chic” to become a thing, carefully preserving my roundness until it starts trending (hihi), here is a fruit that was supposedly the original fruit of knowledge, never mind the apple that wasn’t common in that region. It seems mighty knowledgeable to me. Not to mention positively over the top with its colour, shape and taste. Eating it is like popping tiny oranges, only better. And I lived all my life away from it.

So it happened that last weekend when we were in Rome, first I read a book by a Croatian writer with it on the cover and then got the real thing from the magic garden while bestia enjoyed the sun. When I finished eating it, you bet I stuck my finger in the red puddle that gathered in the plate and smeared it across the picture in the book.

They shouldn’t display it like that. We want to be naughty and the fruit knows it.

I got some to take back home too. Amore found a Turkish Facebook video on the best way to cut it and now I’m a pro.

Oh, if anybody doesn’t know it, this is a pomegranate. In Slovenian it is called “granatno jabolko”, grenade apple. Bursting with knowledge. Deadly. And round.

        Ha! And the timing is cool because at a small group we smaller pomegranates and half the folks did not like it?!! Also – here in the states there is a MLM company that sells a berry juice with pomegranate in it and they are outrageous – and well – the next time I see them I am showing them your opening photo – I love how it is all centered like that! Truly a fantastic nature shot and gives us context to how this beauty grows –

      2. Only this summer I had my first freshly squeezed pomegranate juice at a bar here in Italy, the best thing I’ve ever tasted. Yeah, show it to them, nature knows best. 🙂

    Great photos! I need to learn how to cut them, too. Some friends and I almost got kicked out of a motel once for tossing pomegranate seeds over the balcony rail. I don’t remember why we thought it was necessary to do so. Long time ago.

    1. Hihih, Maggie, they stain beautifully indeed. Good to see you hear again. I’ve been missing you, will catch up soon. As for the cutting: you make six horizontal cuts round and round one third down from the crown, lift the tip up to remove it, and then cut vertically as if you had an orange. I know – TERRIBLY clear. I suggest you find a video on YouTube instead. 🙂

    Great little post to fit the challenge! I even learned something new, which is always fun (I love the transition of the name!).

    1. Hehe, thanks, Lexi. I like to feed the brain too. 😉 I think it’s similar in French. Isn’t pome apple?

    Oops, I see a typo in my comment above – I meant ‘translation,’ of course. And yes, pomme is apple in French. I just never put the whole thing together in my head – apparently, it takes a Slovenian living in Italy to do that!
