Our favorite was the pomegranate. A google search on "pomegranates Ancient Egypt" will bring up lots of great information. I had never used these before. I had to google instructions on how to use them. They are full of seeds which are the part that you eat. They are filled with a great liquid. I also found a wonderful recipe! First you roll the pomegranate on the counter top to smash the seeds inside.

Then you poke a hole into the fruit with a skewer and insert a straw. Of course that part is modern. However I think this is an old method of using the pomegranate. We joked that it was the world's first soft drink! LOL
