Almost a professional

When I was in Thailand last year I was introduced to pomelo and there was hardly a day that went by when I didn't have some. I just loved it.

Imagine my surprise when I was in Sainsbury's in Edinburgh and discovered they actually stocked them there. That was back in December. And then, amazingly, I found them in Sainsbury's in Kelso too. I've been trying hard to keep myself to only buying a couple a week, but recently my pomelo craze has become almost a full blown addiction. I just love them.

There's one big problem with pomelos though and that's peeling them. They are one of the hardest things to get the slices out whole, but after almost a month of trying different methods, I have to say, I've become almost a professional and I can now peel one in it's entirety in approximately 15 minutes (it did take me half an hour back in December). The slices aren't quite as beautifully done as the ones I bought from the supermarket in Bangkok, but I'm getting close.

I guess I'll just have to practice a bit more. 


  1. Yes getting extremely good, but one a day? They are jolly good though

    1. I reckon that one pomelo makes at least 3 of my 5 a day so I'm doing well!
