Insalata di melagrana e Gorgonzola

Pomegranates are among my favorite autumn fruits. Their ruby red color, their sweetness, fresh drops like the morning frost, tasty like the most precious fruit, protected by a shell that knows its duty, to preserve such a tastiness that is also a symbol of luck, fertility and friendship.

Unlikely what one could imagine, it is quite easy to clean pomegranates. Break them with a knife, lean against a big bowl while holding the fruit with the cut part down, and hit it with many rapid strokes using a wooden spoon. If the grains in the bowl still have some skin attached, you only have to leave them to soak in water for a few minutes. The skins will bob up and the grains will be perfectly clean.

A tasty fruit when eaten by itself, it enriches almost all my season salads, when my most loved cheeses and nuts reappear…
