this week in my kitchen






Joining in with Heather over at Beauty That Moves. Some snapshots of what has been happening in my kitchen this week.

We harvested our pomegranates so they've been turning up in lots of things! My fingers are stained red, but it's been a tasty week.

1. Pomegranate, nashi pear and chicken salad.
2. Pomegranate and lime ambrosia cocktail. Recipe can be found HERE.

To see what was happening in my kitchen previously, go here, here, here and here.

  1. Looks lovely. Are all the salad greens from your garden?

    1. Thank you! Most of the salad greens are from my garden. I grow a gourmet salad mix in a few pots- you can see an example of one here https://www.flickr.com/photos/49182185@N02/9519035429/in/set-72157631185623144. I like to do it in pots for easy cutting... but i also had some radiccio in my fridge which I mixed in with it as well :)

  4. I am really hungry! Do tree ripened pomegranates taste sweet? I very rarely use this fruit, probably because I live in Scotland and shop bought tropical fruit are not always great tasting. I came here when I clicked through from a comment you left on my blog. I like it here and will be back soon. And before I forget, thank you for visiting me.

    1. HI Christina! Tree ripened fruit generally always tastes different I think. These pomegranates are a mix of sweet and sour. A bit like sour lollies I guess. Some years they are sweeter/more sour than others, depending on the weather of the season. There are different varieties of pomegranate as well, I know there's a paler pink variety which is generally very sweet.

  5. What an amazing looking salad! You are lucky that you have pomegranates to harvest. I don't think I could even grow them up here. Thanks for sharing.

    1. We are lucky with what we can grow here. Although I bet you could grow apples and berries better than us :)

  16. The pomegranates look so delicious! I grew up in an agriculture area in California where there were lots of pomegranates available, but here in the Midwest (of US) they are so expensive, I don't think I've ever purchased one.
