There are two kinds of pomegranates. The red kind that we grew up eating and our mothers cursed because of the staining quality, and that are most plentiful in stores. There is another variety that has a yellow/green skin and the seeds are pink rather than red. It takes both kinds to make this pie. I came up with this a couple of years ago when I was craving a fresh fruit pie and fresh berries in November are outrageously expensive. I had picked pomegranates at my cousins house and had found the yellow pomegranates growing on the side of the road in a very rural area. I experimented and took it to a church potluck social. It was the hit of the social, and it satisfied my craving for fresh fruit pie. It is requested everytime I get together with my family for Thanksgiving or Christmas.
