This past Saturday, in the writing component of their lesson, our P1 and P2 students’ tackled the task of writing a procedure. In the image above, we can see MarcusI slicing his mango up into chunks.
The text that we’ve been using called for a fairly traditional fruit salad and made use of slightly stodgy old standbys like apples and strawberries, so we elected to kick things up a notch. That’s JamieC up there extracting the delicious and, if pomegranate growers’ claims are to be believed, amazingly health-promoting pomegranate seeds from her pomegranate.
Our students made a version of Nigella Lawson’s Antioxidant Fruit Salad instead. Mangoes, and Pomegranates, and Blueberries! Oh my! The animated GIF image above shows a closeup of a bit of JamieC’s deseeding process.
There’s JamesF with half of the lime that he used to dress his salad. Every student topped their salad off with a bit of lime juice and, the part that makes this fruit salad a version of Nigella’s recipe, optional baby marshmallows!
Above, you can see OlgaC holding her salad, moments before we mixed the components together and drizzled them with lime juice.
[We followed the same general procedure demonstrated by Martha Stewart in this How To De-Seed A Pomegranate with Martha Stewart YouTube video, with instructors handing the bits requiring a sharp knife.]
