Re: Pears

That's funny, Auralie. Being from a similar culture I can identify with the church ladies' being horrified. :o)

Back when I had a serious pomegranate tree, I bought a Squeezo [a
fairly expensive hand-crank juicer] to juice them. Made it very easy.
Squeezo's really a neat tool--easy to separate, say, tomato pulp and
juice from seeds and skin; I should take t out of hiding and use it
When I was a child in Northern Florida we had a pomegranate - it was more
a big shrub than a tree.  My grandmother had a tool that looked like a big
potato-masher - a thick wooden hinged piece with a semicircle with holes
in it cut out of one side and a ball-shaped piece that fitted into it.
That's not
a very good description, but you put the pomegranate seeds into the hollowed part and the ball part that fitted into it squeezed the juice out through the
holes. I remember that she once served a punch made with pomegranate
juice to her church women's group, and they were horrified because they
thought she had spiked the punch.
