Pomegranates are a symbol of fertility (and prosperity). Their poms are also a brilliant red color that contrasts nicely with green for a holiday “salad” that my family makes every year. I’m not sure where we got the recipe, though I believe it may have been from Aunt Carol. It’s very tangy with the lime and pomegranate and most youngsters don’t care for it. The “children’s” version is Yule Pudding which is pistachio pudding with poms in it. For an added festive touch, you can make it in a ring mold.
- 1 box 8-serving size sugar-free lime gelatin (or 2 small boxes)
- poms of one pomegranate
- Make gelatin according to package directions, using 1/4 cup less water than called for.
- When it’s partially thickened, stir in poms.
- Let set.
