My neighbor Martha is one of those women who makes everything look effortless—documentary film producer, wife, mother of two extraordinaire, glamorous hostess and maker of the world’s best Margaritas. The other day she dropped off a bag of gorgeous pomegranates from the tree in her backyard. I’ve enjoyed just looking at them all week, but am thinking of all the ways we might enjoy the tangy-sweet juicy seeds this weekend…over vanilla gelato, floated in a coupe of Sorelle Bronca Prosecco, sprinkled over garlicky lamb chops, or maybe in a Bacon, Pomegranate and Pine Nut Relish with grilled pork chops.

  1. martha IS the hostess extraordinaire! and i love your web site! i am going to try out the prosecco concoction!!!

  2. pomegranates are also a great juiced into hot curries. it mellows the spice and adds sweet tangy flavor.

    • I’ve only tried pomegranate seeds with a mild lamb curry, but dialing up the heat sounds delicious! Thanks for the rec–do you use pomegranate molasses as well, or just the seeds?
