We had a pomegranate tree in our yard at one time that produced about fifty pomegranates a year. I gave many of them to friends and neighbors. I loved sharing them because everyone had a story to tell me about pomegranates. The lady next door fed them to her chickens! My best friend told me she had always gotten them from her grandmother in Hawaii. Another friend told me it reminded her of picking them off a neighbor’s tree and eating them on the way to school. It was always a joy to share the pomegranates!
There were still so many on our tree that I had to develop ways to use them. We had pomegranate arils in everything! This recipe is a favorite of my family. It uses two wonderful Fall fruits, apples and pomegranates.
