Trendy Fruit

For the record: I have loved pomegranates LONG before they were trendy! Long before the days pom-tinis or POMwonderful juice, my family actually had a pomegranate bush in our front yard when we lived in California. My mom used to cut open the pomegranate for us with a huge kitchen knife, and we'd sit at the kitchen counter, picking apart this complicated fruit, the sticky juices running down our fingers. It's funny now looking back as pomegranates seem to be starring in the food world these days! In grade school, my mom would often pack a pomegranate wedge in my lunch, and when I'd pull it out to indulge, people would stare at me in bewilderment. I guess times change... image/maryruffle

I always feel lucky when I'm eating a pomegranate -- like I'm eating some kind of precious miracle fruit. The seeds are like little jewels, and it's so rewarding to break into one and enjoy all the little morsels.

Oh, us California kids. My parents house has two pomegranate trees and I still go home every year to help with the harvest and jelly making. I think the only thing I love more than fresh pomegranates is my mom's pomegranate jelly.
