November is National Pomegranate Month. I found this out last week and luckily with the CSA pomegranates, we are ready to celebrate. Pattie’s special order email lists pomegranates for next week. Fresh pomegranate juice has become part of my new health routine. Check out the POM menu at the top of this blog for recipes and tips. There are tons of different types of dishes, including salads, meat dishes and of course desserts. You can also search the blog entries for photo tips on opening a pomegranate from the farmer, photos following my pomegranate juice process and more recipes.
I was in a yoga class this week and ran into a member that loved the Pomegranate Ginger Muffins from a hard-copy flyer a few weeks ago. This made me want to make the muffins and taste the flavor that they described. She wanted to know the recipe source to share with friends. We will do a better job of combining efforts to have recipes all available on the blog so that you can share with your friends and family. And, thank you for reminding me of recipes and the CSA food, even in yoga class!
I did some web searching and found the recipe so that we could properly credit the original source. Here is the link below from http://www.myrecipes.com. This recipe was originally printed in Sunset Magazine. If you have never been on MyRecipes, it is a great website to browse. It gathers recipes from many food magazines and has a great search engine to find them. I often stop at this site to decide what to make for dinner when I am out of inspiration. This site always gives me several ideas.
