How to open a pomegranate in Marrakech ?

One of the best parts of travelling to Marrakech in October, besides the perfect weather, is the pomegranates !!

Since the pomegranate season starts in October, you can see them all over the place! And it is very easy to buy them on the street. They are sold for about 5 dirhams per kilo if you bargain to get what they call the “Arabic price” (instead of the tourist one)…

They have two kinds of pomegranates:
– one with light pink seeds (very sweet)
– one with dark red seeds (unlike the Israeli ones, they are very sweet too and not acidic at all)

Here is an easy and beautiful way to open and serve them!

Let me know if you tried 🙂
