OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG!! Thanksgiving is only a few weeks away. It’s my absolute favorite. It’s like the crème de le crème of holidays, raising the bar so high that all other holidays just have to accept this fact and fight for the number two slot.
I will even be posting twice a week – for me, that’s love and devotion.
So, let’s get started!
When I was a kid, we had a pomegranate tree in our back yard. When they were ripe, the family would gather around the kitchen table, scooping out all the seeds into a large community bowl. Then we would eat the seeds by large spoonfuls. I remember the seeds had a slight crunch, popping in my mouth, releasing their juice. My tongue and lips would be stained purple for a little while. It remains a great childhood memory.
That pomegranate tree has since been replaced by tangelos and I’ve yet to buy a pomegranate at the market with the same sort of ripeness. So my life has been void of anything resembling pomegranates for a long time. Until a few weeks ago when POM Wonderful offered to send me some samples of their pomegranate juice.
This relish incorporates cranberries, pomegranate juice, orange juice, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Mmmm. The look! The smell! The taste! A triple threat. (I also discovered recently how terrific it is mixed with yogurt and used as a dip. Try it!)
Get your holiday underway by making some. It’s glorious.
POM Wonderful sent me way more bottles than I need. And you know how I enjoy sharing the love, so I’m giving most of the samples away.
