Cliff Notes for Pomegrantes – Plus a Preamble to a Prelude

For your viewing pleasure:  Cliff Notes for  “anâr doon kardan” — as promised.

So you probably think that after a week-long pomegranate-palooza here at Fig & Quince that we’d finally be done with it. But I have to gently break it to you … no!  We’re not.  (Didn’t you know, Persians are crazy about pomegranates!  This fruit has left an indelible imprint on not just the cuisine but also the art and poetry of Iran. It is a love affair.)

On that note, expect a post on khoresh ‘eh fesenjoon ( a ridiculously delicious walnut & pomegranate-syrup concoction) coming your way in a week or so; and just prior to that, we’ll have a special post for making your very own homemade pomegranate syrup!  (Recipe courtesy of the talented and imaginative cook, Suzanne of apuginkitchen.  Isn’t that wonderful?)

Until then, go and doon or āblamboo a pomegranate and let it race through your bloodstream with its delicious anti-oxidants.

And oh yes, Dowager Countess Violet Crawley commands me to tell you to have a great week end, whatever that is.

  1. This is perfect! I love the illustrations.., amazing 🙂
    You could publish a book only on pictorial guides of everything!! You should do it my friend.., seriously!

    • Thank you Petit. It’s interesting you say that because my gut instinct was that this was a direction of interest and fun for me and kind of my cup of tea. So, I’m very much taking your feedback to heart. Thank you! Very good idea. Really appreciate it.

      • Please let us know. I would definitely purchase some copies for myself and friends!


    • Thank you! You know, I’ve seen that method promoted recently. I’m all for modern innovations but I’m not sure if it’s an improvement on the tried and true way of doing it the way I grew up with. Then again, haven’t given it a try so I know not wherefore I speak off. It does seem a bit de-trop. Longwinded way of saying: thank you for visiting!!

    • Thank you! Yes it’s not fair that they are so pretty and so good as well! Some fruit have all the luck! Thanks for visiting Natalie.

  2. I simply could not go away your website before suggesting that I actually
    loved the usual info an individual provide in your visitors?
    Is going to be again incessantly in order to check out new posts

    • Hi Randy! Thank you SO MUCH for the lovely and complimentary feedback.

      Do come back and visit all the time!

    • What a lovely thing to say! Thank you for this comment and I’m very happy this post was useful to you. I have to say that these pomegrante posts are among my favorite posts to date! 🙂

  3. When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added”
    checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get three emails
    with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service?


    • Hi, A handful of posts have been infected by SPAM comments which I totally understand is annoying to receive and it is frustrating on my end as well. I apologize to you and anyone else who’s been getting these unwanted comments. I don’t know if it’s possible to reverse “notify when new comments are added” but I have by now closed comments for any post older than 30 days – which covers this particular post – so that neither you nor anyone else should be receiving any further emails.

  4. Dear commenters: If you cicked the “Notify new comments” and no longer wish to get those notification emails, I can not unsubscribe you, but you can do on your end. Look for a “manage subscriptions” link in the footer of each email that you receive, and that will take you where you can “unsubscribe” from that thread.

    This is according to WordPress’ Support reply to my request for removing readers’ email notification subscriptions.

    I’m now turning comments back on for this post.

  8. Skype has established its website-centered client beta towards the entire world, after establishing it
    broadly inside the United states and You.K. earlier
    this month. Skype for Web also now works with Chromebook and Linux for instant text messaging conversation (no voice and
    video but, all those require a connect-in set up).

    The expansion from the beta adds help for a
    longer listing of different languages to help bolster
    that worldwide usability
