Pomegranites

October 26th, 2009 by Pamela Murski

First pomegranite of the season from my friends trees was harvested recently at her farm near Burton, Texas.  Mary Jane, a great friend in my culinary unit, is also a wonderful artist and weaver.  She and her husband built their home by hand and it is a intense mixture of color, whimsy, art and function.  Her gardens are eclectic in form and by their very nature an extension of her artistic bent.  While at her home recently for a meal, I snapped this photo of her in her kitchen with her pomegranite in hand!  (TIP:  While in Brenham, be sure to sign up for one of her weaving classes at Fibers!)

Not only great decorative tools, pomegranites are also edible and full of vitamins—–seed are used in salads, as garnishes, eaten out of hand fresh and juiced for their antioxidant properties being used in drinks from cocktails to punch!
