Only half the pomegranates got juiced. I stopped so I could get a chicken smoked and get the dog food made.
We have one tree that produces white pomegranates. The outsides are kinda pink, compared to the deep red of the other pomegranates but the arils are white. I think the white ones are much sweeter than the red ones.
I kept out three jars for us to have with breakfast over the next few days. We’ll split a jar each morning. I wish I had enough pomegranates to be able to have a glass of fresh pom juice every morning but . . at least for now, we don’t get that many pomegranates.
The jar on the left is left is probably almost all red poms and the two on the right are a mix of white and red.
All the flesh and peelings went into the compost bin.
I put all the pomegranate seeds in zipper bags and stuck them in the freezer. I think there were nine bags total. Those will be great pomegranate popsicles for the chickens next summer when the temps are way too hot. We may get rid of the chickens before next summer but . . we may not so I’ll be ready with treats for them just in case we still have them.
No part of the pomegranates went to waste. That makes me happy!
