How to Eat a Pomegranate

Pomegranates have been a long time favorite fruit of many.  In California the Pomegranate flowers begin blooming start of August, and by late September to beginning of October the pomegranates are usually full ripe, and ready to pick off and eat!

Aside from being one of the most delicious fruits on the planet..

Pomegranates have extraordinary health benefits

They are loaded with powerful antioxidant, rich in vitamin C, and are beneficial to the production of collagen which helps keep your skin, hair, and nails youthful looking all year round!

Some people avoid eating pomegranates or enjoying the fruit indoors due to the mess they can make,  and have resorted to spending extra money at the grocery store to buy the seeds ready to eat. I used to be one of those people.

If you’re anything like me though, you will figure out a way to get to the goods yourself without the mess, to ingest the amazing health benefits of the Pomegranate.

Below is the method I have discovered, by simple process called trial and error.

When visiting Kauai Hawaii, I was really attracted to the Plumeria flower trees. I loved the smell, and the flowers come in a variety of colors from white, to yellow and pink. The Plumeria’s were everywhere!

The smell of these flowers made me so happy I decided to make a nice floral arraignments with a variety of flowers including those for our cottage during our stay.

With our last day approaching, I knew the one thing I’d miss greatly was the smell of these flowers.  With the abundance of flowers accessible to me, I decided I wanted to make my own Hawaiian Lei, so that I could enjoy them for the flight home as well.

As it turned out creating my own Lei was a great success! So I made sure to take notes, & photographs to document the process to share with others.

If you would like to try to make your own Hawaiian Lei, I’ve created a step by step document.

How to Make a Familiar Style Hawaiian Lei

I wanted to make a free tutorial on YouTube demonstrating how to crochet my Lucky Pouch Bag  Crochet design.
I am happy to announce that day has finally come. You can check out my YouTube tutorial below.

The craft thread is found in a variety of colors.  I think you will find the Pouch Bag is quick and easy to crochet; which means You can make quick gifts just in time for the holidays.

They are small; average size is 2 inches by 2 1/2 inches.

Try alternating red, and white for the Christmas spirit. Fill them up with coins, candy, rocks, lip balm, or anything that will fit, and tie them to the outside of the box.

Make them up as a tree ornament filled with Potpourri, or fill it with mistletoe.

I have also found the pouch bag, good used as a sachet. Simply fill them with lavender or any herb scent or cedar chips, and hang them in the closet or tuck away in a shoe.

There are many uses, if you let your imagination run free.

Are you the type of person who loves to haunt the house and go all out for your party guests on Halloween?

Want something different to hand out to your little goblins as they come thru the door?

Than I have a nice Crochet Pattern idea to share. It’s called the Pumpkin Patch Pouch Bag!  That’s a real tongue twister right?

Like all my pouch bags the little ones love to wear them around their necks.

This Party Fun Favorite will give you an opportunity to stand out with ghostly flair! You’ll be known as the “fun-fest party host” on the block because you’ve gifted them with a little Pumpkin Pouch Bag, made with love and filled with candies they are sure to gobble down in no time!

Guests (kids) get to keep the pouch bag as a reminder of what a cool party you threw!

Pouch bags can be filled with M&M’s, Corn Candy, Reese’s pieces, or Skittles to name a few.

If you want each pouch bag to have a greater meaning imagine rewarding them to the winners of the “apple bobbing” or “best costume” contest.

A single bag can be crocheted up in just a few short hours depending on skill level or how fast you are.

So dig out your 2.5 Crochet Hook, grab two colors (orange & green) cotton thread and allow me to show you how it’s done.

Hurry time is ticking!  Watch to see how many Pumpkin Pouch Bags you can make in time for Halloween.
