    Homemade Pomegranate Molasses is a versatile little gem to have on hand in your fridge and makes a great gift. If you can't find fresh pomegranates, you can use pure pomegranate juice. Have you ever made your own fresh pomegranate juice? It is super simple. You basically just put the seeds in your food processor and then press the pulp through a fine sieve. The seeds can be easily removed from the fruit in a bowl of water. The seeds will sink to the bottom and all of the white bits will float to the top, making it easy for you to scoop out. The water also helps prevent your hands and counters from being stained by the beautiful ruby red colour of the pomegranate fruit. Once you have pomegranate juice, combine it with pure maple syrup and orange juice in a sauce pan. Simmer until it is reduced to about 3 cups. From

    Did you know the cookie was actually invented in ancient Persia (now Iran) in the 7th century, A.D.? The earliest cookie-style cakes are thought to date back to 7th century Persia A.D. (now Iran), one of the first countries to cultivate sugar (luxurious cakes and pastries in large and small versions were well known in the Persian empire). According to historians, sugar originated either in the lowlands of Bengal or elsewhere in Southeast Asia. Sugar spread to Persia and then to the Eastern Mediterranean. I haven't tried this yet, but looking forward to it! From The Art of Armenian and Middle Eastern Cooking.

    Recipe #500255

    You've heard of almond milk, you can also make other nut milks, like walnut milk. Here is a good recipe from Better Homes and Gardens. The nuts need some time to soak, so plan accordingly. Compared to certain other nuts, such as almonds, peanuts and hazelnuts, walnuts (especially in their raw form) contain the highest total level of antioxidants. California, China, Iran, Turkey, Ukraine, Mexico, Romania, India, France and Chile are the largest producers of walnuts. Interesting note: In China, pairs of walnuts have traditionally been rotated and played with in the palm of the hand, both as a means to stimulate blood circulation and as a status symbol. Pairs of large, old and symmetrically shaped walnuts are valued highly and have recently been used as an investment, with some of them fetching tens of thousands of dollars. Pairs of walnuts are also sometimes sold still in their green skin, as a form of gambling known as du he tao.[

    Recipe #500254

    In Iran, a pitcher of sekanjabin is served at family picnics, especially during those long, hot months. The syrup is simple: sugar, mint and water. But it’s the vinegar that makes this into a delicious sweet and sour concoction. The mint syrup can be served two ways. The first is as a dipping sauce for fresh, crisp lettuce leaves. There’s something quite novel watching grown adults lick their fingers while dipping their crispy greens into this very sticky syrup. Heads of lettuce are consumed by the bunches as everyone dips on leaf after another. Some prefer sekanjabin as a drink: diluted in water, served over a glass filled with ice and grated cucumber. You can control the amount of sweetness, adding more or less water as desired. Some prefer more tang and add a bit more vinegar or lemon juice.
