Listed below are links to weblogs that reference How To- Peel a pomegranate, Cook bacon, Make kale chips and a sweet-ish snack:


ed (from Yuma)

Great looking farmers' market bag. Pretty pictures, nice looking produce. One of the interesting things about getting random bags like that is figuring out ways to use all the stuff. Looks like you came up with some creative solutions.


We got the Buddha Hand too from the Farmers Market Bag...I went down to the store, bought a Tito's Handmade 1 liter bottle of vodka and infused it with finely sliced (pith removed) buddha hand. Im letting it soak for a couple weeks and then going to bust it out for Hand of Buddha Martini's, with a bit of ginger juice, a squeeze of lemon etc.

Wonder how a sugar/black cardamom rimmed martini glass would taste with Buddha Hand Vodka/Ginger martini...


hi cathy - very cool post! informative! i've never had kale that way before (chips) only in soups. i must try it next time i buy kale. i like the look of the buddha's hand too - very striking! for bacon, before baking it, i like to brush maple syrup on top and sprinkle fresh cracked black pepper. it's really good! my daughter really loves pomegranate seeds too. good tip on how to be less messy! :)


Thanks, ed! You know how I do brussels sprouts and asparagus..the potatoes were kind of starchy and we made hash browns out of them. Not pretty.
Hi Dave and welcome (I think you are a new 'Dave' for the commenting side of the blog). Your idea sounds right-kind of Lemoncello-ish, with the ginger addition (I used to drink warmed Vernors Ginger Ale with lemon and honey, when I had a cold). Be careful with crdamom- it is very strong (I use it in baking and grind the seeds from pods in my mortar and pestle)...use more sugar than cardamom.
Hello cc! It was an idea for a post. I have more things I can share. The maple syrup on bacon I have heard, but not tried. Pepper sounds like it will be right also. Maybe for Sunday brunch...


What a great tip on the pomegranite, thanks! I never knew how to use the Buddha Hands and now I have some ideas. I like the idea of baking the bacon and CC's idea of maple syrup (yum!). Y'all are full of ideas, I love it!


I've been trying to making note of how we automatically do things and things people have asked me how to do easier for the past few months, Carol. I've had to peel *many* poms in my day and this way is the cleanest. The bacon thing came about when I watched a friend completely messing up her kitchen, being splattered and having a heck of a stovetop cleanup. I bought a Buddaha's hand at Vien Dong II about 20 years ago, for 25¢, didn't know what it was called or what to do with it, so we ate it raw and made up our own uses for it (mostly stteped in tea and put in cookies. pies and cakes), but now with this new fandangled Interweb thing, have learned other ways to use it. Plus, it is just pretty. This topic of 'how to' was fun for me. I have more stuff I can post...


Cool video about pomegranate seeds.


Hi again, Will. Thanks for the link...and another site I can "like" on Facebook.
