My wife loves Pomegranate (Punica granatum), personally I’m not keen on them. We came across this Pomegranate Tree on the Greek Island of Halki (Chalki). Sylvia was quite excited, well we don’t get them in Scotland (yawn), and insisted I took a photograph, so here it is (you are all thrilled, aren’t you!!)
In Greece, pomegranate (Greek: ρόδι, rodi) is used in many recipes, including kollivozoumi, a creamy broth made from boiled wheat, pomegranates and raisins, legume salad with wheat and pomegranate, traditional Middle Eastern lamb kebabs with pomegranate glaze, pomegranate eggplant relish, and avocado-pomegranate dip.
Pomegranate is also made into a liqueur and popular fruit confectionery used as ice cream topping or mixed with yogurt or spread as jam on toast. In Cyprus as well as in Greece and among the Greek Orthodox Diaspora, ρόδι is used to make kolliva, a mixture of wheat, pomegranate seeds, sugar, almonds and other seeds served at memorial services.
