There was a commercial that said, “Anything nestled in a fluted paper cup has to be good!” It seems to me that nature wanted to so venerate the beautiful pomegranate that it wrapped each of these jeweled speckled seeds in a nest of paper thin membranes– to remind the bearer that this indeed was something very special.
There is something extremely special about the pomegranate fruit. Again, another example of what is possible when the sun, earth, and rain come together to create something so fragrant and flavorful! When these fruits are ripened, I gather them and either seed a bowl full, or squeeze it for the juice. It is excellent in a vinaigrette, or sipped on slowly for your morning breakfast. Full of antioxidants, the pomegranate is yet another example of the amazing wonder fruits we grow on our little Rock!
