Your name means ‘seeded apple’ but to me you’re a royal punk rocker.
Your smooth case and ruby gleam are your queenly qualities. Then bam – there’s the burst of sweet and sharp juice, the gritty seed inside pink pulp. Chew on that, Johnny Rotten!
You’re on my fertility food list because of your vitamin content (C, K and B especially).
Okay, so you’re a bugger to peel – but I forgive you because you slow me down and it’s satisfying to separate your seeds from the membrane.
Breakfast heaven is pomegranate porridge with soaked almonds – God save the queen to that!
