The Shortest Distance Possible

...
The shortest food distance possible: from backyard to fridge

Since I planted this pomegranate tree some years ago, this summer is the first time it produced fruit. Exactly four pomegranates. I couldn't be more proud. One burst, so that's for the birds. One I ate. No ceremony, just ate to see if it was real. And edible. And two now await to be appreciated appropriately, and as slowly as possible.

Aren't those the fruits with all the seeds in them? How do you eat those anyway? I've never had one.
