Originally from Asia Minor (Persia and Afghanistan), pomegranate (Latin name “Punica granatum”) and its fruits were brought in Europe by Phoenician merchants. Italian word derives from “mela” (apple), for its shape and colour, and “grana” (grain), for the consistency of its internal seeds, very similar to corn. It is one of the main subjects in many stories and legends, and it was a sacred plant to Juno and Venus in ancient Greece. In ancient Rome, brides used to put pomegranate branches in their hair, symbol of fertility and richness. It was very widely represented in works of art and culture during the Renaissance, main subject in the works of Caravaggio. Nowadays, this fruit is used to make Italian and European dishes simply unique! Cooking time: 13-15 minutes.
