Stick as many toothpicks into the carrot and apple as you can. Stick kiwi, grapes, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, cantaloupe and watermelon pieces on as you can onto the toothpicks. Top with a slice of cantaloupe you have cut into a star. You can also attach pieces of fudge, Hershey’s kisses, Rolos and small chocolates instead of fruit -or why not both – to make a great gift or centerpiece for your Christmas party.

Pomegranate Seed Harvesting – Quickly

Love, pomegranate seeds but hate to have to get them out, or need them for a recipe…. heres some quick help with this pesky task:

1: Gently roll the pomegranate in your palm against the counter… but not too hard, you don’t want to squish those juice delicious seeds and make them no good.

2: Slice in half – on cutting board…. juice can stain a light colored counter.

3:Pry out seeds in handfuls and transfer them to another bowl.

Then eat the sweet delicious little seeds or have them ready for that special recipe.
