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
Pomegranet grains
for each cup of pomegranet grains you can add to taste:
some sugar
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.

Packed with antioxidants equal to those in green tea and red wine, and especially loaded with Vitamin C and Potassium, pomegranates are said to help:

  • Lower Risk of Heart Disease
  • Lower Risk of Cancer, Especially Prostate and Breast
  • Lessen Symptoms of Diarrhea
  • Reduce Cholesterol
  • Control Your Weight
  • Fight Cell Damage
