These have been our 2 fruits of choice of late. M’s crazy about eating pomegranates and we happily found some really big ones at Costco (a box of 6, of course). We’ve been going through them like mad. Miss C is intrigued by them as they look so appealing, like little ruby nuggets that are edible, but she can’t get past the hard kernel inside. And the persimmons? They are from my dad’s tree. He jokes that nobody steals them off his front lawn because nobody knows what they are or what to do with them. Persimmons may not be so commonly eaten here, but when they are perfectly ripe, they are like sweet custard with a most unusual flavor. We break the skin and scoop it up with a spoon. Claudine ate one a day last year for a whole month when she was a baby, but she won’t go near them this year.
