Side note: how full on is this fog?? Took the doggie for a walk last night, and looking down the side streets with the skeletal trees, I just kept thinking 'any second now the Headless Horseman is gonna come galloping towards me'. Fog is just really creepy at night.
Some facts about POMEGRANATE:
- The name "pomegranate" derives from Latin pomum ("apple") and granatus ("seeded").
- The pomegranate ('rimmôn') is mentioned in the Bible as one of the seven fruits/plants that Israel was blessed with.
- The pomegranate originated from Persia and has been cultivated in Georgia, Armenia and the Mediterranean region for several millennia (it's one of the most ancient fruits).
- Grenadine syrup is thickened and sweetened pomegranate juice used in cocktail mixing.
- Pomegranate aril juice provides about 16% of an adult's daily vitamin C requirement per 100 ml serving, and is a good source of vitamin B5, potassium and antioxidant polyphenols.
- Persephone (Greek Mythology) was condemned to spend 4 months each year in hades as a consequence for eating 4 pomegranate seeds.
- Pomegranates are also prominent at Greek weddings and funerals.
Taste: 3.5/5. I couldn't find a pomegranate so I used Pomegranate syrup that Helen bought for me from a Turkish deli. Because the syrup was a little sour so the end result was tangy.
Would I make it again: No. Didn't really make me go yum.
