Can you see what's growing outside my window?
Here, look a little closer.
Thought pomegranates were always red and tart? These yellow ones are pure sweetness. It'll make you an addict my youngest aunt promised years ago when she gave me my first yellow pomegranate.
The color may not be as bold as the red varieties you're used to seeing, but trust me, the flavor is infinitely sweeter.
I'm obviously not Persephone because I can eat much more than just 6 measly pomegranate seeds.
(Psst! If you're coming to this post via TasteSpotting, it wasn't me. The editor changed my caption to 3. I know my Greek legends. Persephone ate 6 seeds. So for half the year, she was forced to live underground with Hades. And Demeter was so inconsolable with losing her daughter for half the year that she made the flowers die ie. autumn and winter. Sheesh. You'd figure people would check their facts before making corrections.)
Hmm. I think it's time to make another batch of fessenjan (Persian walnut pomegranate Cornish game hen) and I'll decorate the plate with pomegranate seeds.
