November is upon us and it is time for new challenge. One Ingredient this month has been chosen. The one, the only…….POMEGRANATE. It has to be one of the most beautiful fruits. Little bead like jewels which bleed puddles of dark red juice. They are something to behold with a sweet taste and a lightly sour edge .
I remember these fruits from when I was little. I used to spend hours picking away at each individual seed with a sewing needle. They were so exotic. I would end up getting covered in the dark red juice and back then, there was no sign of Pomegranate juice. This was the 70s, way before it became fashionable to drink the “must have” juice it was to become albeit briefly.
I hope you will join in with this challenge in either a sweet or a savoury way. Pomegranates can be used in salads (sweet & savoury), cakes and desserts as well as being a garnish for Tagines. How about using Pomegranate molasses or the juice to enhance a dressing or even a marinade.
Just a reminder about linking back to both myself and Nazima, who has now moved over to Franglais Kitchen, when you post your recipe. If you Tweet using the hashtag #OneIngredient we will both retweet all entires we see. You can read the One Ingredient Rules HERE.
I hope that this beautiful fruit will make you feel inspired to join us for One Ingredient this month!
