Too Many Pomegranates?


You may have noticed that pomegranates have made their way into my blog quite a bit lately. Having discovered pomegranate concentrate or molasses I have done a little experiementing. I've also been writing a story on syrups including some recipes using pomegranate syrup for SF Station that hopefully will be published soon.

Clearly someone is taking notice of my pomegranate promoting...this is an actual email I received last week. I swear I did not make this up!

By the way, 268 kilograms of pomegranate concentrate is just shy of 600 pounds. Ok, so I like it, but not that much.
