Pleasure of Pomegranates
Two splendid pomegranates jumped into my basket from a holiday display of exotic fruit at the supermarket. Their price was double the usual but so was their size. (shown here one usual and one special)
Inside were deep red seeds, like semi-precious jewels, shining garnets.
When I had finished, my plate seemed to bear a watercolour wash of alizarin crimson. The word alizarin has its origins from the Arabic word for juice.*
Lots of vitamin C, K and folate, some magnesium and of course, fiber.
*Origin of the word alizarin:
< French alizarine, equivalent to alizar (i) (< Spanish < Arabic al the + ʿaṣārah juice) + -ine
