When I was a guest of Taste of Israel to the Holy Land for a culinary and cultural adventure, I was intrigued and fascinated by the Jerusalem Market~~the fresh fruits, vegetables, spices, herbs, flowers, meats, pastries, breads, cheeses, wines and more were abundant! One thing that I realized was that pomegranates are almost a staple there~~I saw pomegranate seeds, juices, and the whole fruits everywhere!
As a child, pomegranates were a specialty, something that only came when in season, usually around the holidays~~so Mom would splurge and buy these spectacular fruits! I remember the tiny bursts of sweetness, like popping bubblewrap in your mouth, every time I bit into one! That sensation of excitement still is there for pomegranates, and since visiting Israel, I now have even more of a love for this special fruit.
