I read your post & was trying to remember who the goddess of Pomegranates was. I came across this. . . It's funny but, interesting in this weird year where everyone is reading Medical research studies -I love pomegranates and they’re really healthy. About nine years ago I got them in December for $1 each so I bought a lot and was always cleaning them and we ate little bowls of seeds all the time. I don’t know how other people clean them but the best hint I read was under water in big bowl in the sink.
