I love the deep ruby~red color and the fruity~crunchy taste of the lovely pomegranate jewel, and I find them to be a beautiful, delicious layer of them at the bottom of a glass of cold Chablis in the mid of winter.

Here’s some fascinating historical information on these beauties. I hope you enjoy this portion of an article from NPR called Jewels in the fruited crown.
“One of the earliest cultivated fruits, the pomegranate has been traced back as far as 3,000 B.C. Some scholars even suggest that it was a pomegranate, not an apple, that tempted Eve.
Sounds (and looks) delicious. I have never even tried a pomegranate – so this will be a new gastronomic adventure for me. And of course love that there's a history- a good back story always makes the difference!

Q – I hope you'll try them, I try to keep a bowl of jewels in the refrigerator all winter to put them on top of things (or bottom of things, like vino). I loved reading the historical significance of the fruit as well. Happy Sunday.
Pam – I know, I am always torn between leaving them out in a bowl to enjoy their beauty, and storing them in the refrigerator so they will last…what dilemma..
I hope it snows!
Thank you Eddie and Jaithan – Joy and happiness to you two!
