Pomegranate Honey

A honey that attracts attention

A delicious and healthy combination of pomegranate and honey, fabulous to eat or cook with, and winter-healthy as well.

Pomegranate Honey is a mixture of honey and the juice of pomegranate. It is healthy, and we recommend a teaspoon a day during the cold winter months. Extracting the juice can take time, but if you have a cold pressed juicer, it is really easy. You can read more about how to extract pomegranate juice here. By the way, I am not receiving any compensation for linking to this juicer, it is for information purposes only.

A Quick Burghul Salad with Olives, Pomegranate and Hazelnuts

A salad comes together from almost nothing

The other morning, while making coffee and getting a quick breakfast ready, I got my lunch prep underway. In no time there was a small handful of burghul soaking in hot water. The last of some green olives, halved. Hazlenuts quickly toasted. Some left over slivered almonds.  Onions soaking in red wine vinegar. The last of a jar of kimchi.

Tomato and Pomegranate Salad

From Plenty More, Ottolenghi comes up with a cracker tomato salad with hints of the Middle East.

Who can go past a tomato salad in late summer or autumn when the tomatoes are the sweetest and juiciest? And to celebrate the arrival of Autumn and it’s change in colours, Ottolenghi has this cheery bright red salad that combines the sweetness of the tomatoes with the sour-sweetness of the pomegranates.

The salad is best made in Autumn when the pomegranates come into season.

Green Olive, Walnut, Pistachio and Pomegranate Salad

The most incredible salad

In the past it has been difficult to get pomegranates that were as tasty as those in Tamil Nadu and Kerala in India. There, they are so flavoursome, sweet, served by the bowlful for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Here, early in the season, there were only wild pomegranates in the shop. Small, tart, hard, inedible. It was only later, much much later, some became available that approach the deliciousness of the fruit of India.

Semi Dried Tomatoes with Pomegranate Molasses

In this Indian Summer weather,some dried tomatoes with pomegranate molasses / syrup, seems perfect, especially if eaten with thick thick yoghurt.  Also perfect but a little different are dried tomatoes with sumac. Drying tomatoes concentrates the sugars, and this makes them a perfect foil for pomegranate or sumac.

Crabapple and Pomegranate Jelly with Rosebuds

Red jelly from green crab apples.

I have access to a lovely tree of green crabapples and in late Autumn, with its final lot of green fruits clinging doggedly to the tree, many more lie below nestled in the autumn leaves. It took me back to more rustic times, to days of jam making in my Grandmother’s kitchen, to stirring jam in large preserving pans with huge wooden sticks.

Pomegranate and Banana Salad

Celebrating the Pomegranate.

On one trip to Kerala in India, the hotel had the sweetest and most succulent pomegranates at each meal. They were so unlike anything that we could get at home that I ate more that I care to mention.

In Kerala, the pomegranates were beautiful. The salads and side serves featuring the bright red globules were wonderful. For many years our local pomegranates were tough and bitter. Fortunately times have change and good pomegranates are more widely available.
