    The Royal Pomegranate

    The Royal Pomegranate

    Pomegranates are cherished for their exquisite beauty, flavour, colour, and health benefits.  

    They are royalty amongst fruit and we here at Nest treat them as royalty too.  We have loved adding them to some of our seasonal dishes... moroccan beef salad with fresh pomegranates; slow cooked lamb on pistachio biscuits, mint yoghurt & pomegranates; cardamon, ginger & pomegranate syrup cake...

    Did you know pomegranates have been symbols of prosperity, hope, and abundance in every part of the world and these days regarded as one of the 'superfoods'.

    Fortunately for us they grow well in our cool climate and this Autumn the lovely Suzie A'Beckett brought us a basket full to decorate the dishes and tastebuds of nest diners.  Next Autumn or maybe the one after we are hoping our tree will be ready to fruit. 

    Until then while the jewelled fruit is still ripe and juicy, be sure to try one of our pomegranate featured dishes and feel the superfood power in your day
    (if you believe that or just enjoy the spritzy taste and colour).
