In Spain its a habit to serve fruit with some sort of dressing. It is an age old tradition to add wine or liquer to fruit in many spanish homes. I went over to my friend Adela´s place and she had recieved a whole basket of these lovely pomegrantes. I just love them..tho peeling them to get these lovely pearly ruby grains are a pain. Its nice to sit in company and peel them that way you dont get bored and thats exactly what i did. Adela taught me a nice dressing for them to soak in till dessert time. I was a little taken aback and wondered how it would taste but it was yummy!! So here i am sharing this secret (she says its her grandmas) with all of you, with her permission ofcoruse
for each cup of pomegranet grains you can add to taste:
some freshly squeezed orange juice
and a splash of sweet dessert wine (like a valencian mistela or moscatel wine or even an alcohol free wine for my halaal viewers or some grape juice)
Put the pomegranet kernels in a bowl and mix with some orange juice, a bit of sugar to taste and then a good splash of sweet wine or alcohol free wine or some grapejuice. Let it rest covered in the fridge for an hour and then serve.
WHICH WINE GOES BEST WITH THIS????
