Pomegranates are the IT fruit these days. The taste, the essential nutrients and antioxidants have been the main driving force behind the growing popularity of these ancient fruit. The pomegranate originated in Persia and has been cultivated in the region for several millennia. Both the fresh fruit and various preparations of it are deeply incorporated into Persian cooking and culture for years. A quick search of Iranian directories for Persian culinary arts will return an assortment of recipes incorporating pomegranates. Perhaps, the best known dish is ash-e anar, a Persian soup made with pomegranate juice. I have submitted my favorite recipe to persiancity.com. I hope you enjoy it.
