Pomegranates


JA SAM PRAKTICNO LUDA za narovima. Biranje, posebno u Malom Kalenicu, sveza otvorena krunica, pa zagledanje kore, ocenjivanje tezine.

Superfruit je malo ruzna, turbo rec, ali govori nesto o toj cudnoj skupini neobicno snaznog voca medju kojima je i nas danasnji heroj. Ima nar neku posebnu tajanstvenost, misticnost, istinsku divotu. Price o njemu sezu daleko u istoriju civilizacije.


Postoji ono neko zvanicno uputstvo za otvaranje nara secenjem krunice i nara kao da je pomorandza, pa onda krunjenje u ciniju sa vodom, cedjenje, sto posuda i cuda. Budalastina, ako pitate mene. Obucem nesto sto mi nije zao da uflekam i ludovanje u jedenju nara postaje citav dogadjaj. Oktobar je i:


Sezona narova je od oktobra do januara, kod nas nesto krace. U svetu, najpoznatiji super chic nar brend je POM. Odnosno, POM Wonderful. Sa srcem umesto "O". Znaju me u dusu.

POM boce su prepoznatljive, u obliku nara, sa sve krunicom na vrhu. To ne funkcionise tako jednostavno na boci soka koja izgleda kao da su dva nara slozena jedan na drugi, pa sve to djuture deluje kao neko cudno japansko pakovanje u obliku malog tega, ali solo nar bocica sa tabletama u kojoj je svaka napucana ekvivalentu 250ml soka. Radije bih popila 250ml soka, ali bih volela i ovu POMX Pills bocicu. Za neke zacine.

U POM-u osecaju magiju nara i daju joj svu paznju. Iako sam za to da svako nadje svoj nacin pristupa naru (kao sto svako ima nacin kako jede Jaffu, Munch ili zivotinjice od marcipana), ipak kacim ovu POM-ovu diiiiivnu reklamu.



Aaaahh.... Prelepo.

I tu nije kraj.

Moj omiljeni Korres ima citavu liniju proizvoda od nara - masku za lice, scrub, kremu, maramice za ciscenje lica od sminke, butere za usne.

Konacno, da sa vam ja nekakav kreativni konsultant nekog restorana, ovo bi bila obavezno bila sezona za ukljucivanje nara u neka od jela. Barem u vidu sprinklovanja. Na POM sajtu pronaci cete gomilu recepata sa narom u glavnoj ili manje glavnoj ulozi, a evo kako to radi istanbulski Kafe Fernando:

za pravljenje zaledjenog jogurta od nara potrebno je:

- 2 solje sveze cedjenog soka od nara
- 1+1/2 solje obicnog jogurta
- 2/3 solja Grenadine sirupa od nara
- 1/2 solje secera
- 2 kasike soka od limuna

+ nacin spravljanja na njihovom sajtu.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Plus, sveze cedjeni sok od nara. Elixir ima taj Oktobarski Eliksir, napravljen od NARA, DUNJE i NARANDZE. Meni ne leze citrusi pa bih mozda narandzu zamenila jabukom, ali ljudi moji, koliko je to super sok! Ako se slegne odvoje se slojevi, dole ostaje bistro crveni sok mesavine nara i narandze a gore se sakupi debeljuskasta brasnjava masa od dunje. A kada se promesa... cudesna losos boja spremna da nestane u cugu!


Uzivajte u jeseni, zimi i narovima!

I'M PRACTICALLY mad about pomegranates. Picking them in my favorite fruit and veggie store here in Belgrade, looking at its crown, checking its skin, its weight.

Superfriut
as a bit ugly, turbo word, but it really talks about the plants belonging to the group. Among others, pomegranates are there. And it has this certain secrecy, mysteriousness, true delightfulness. The stories of it go way back to the past into the true roots of our civilization.

There's that official how to cut open the pomegranate, but it takes to much dishes and stuff involved. It's all bull if you ask me. I put on something I won't feel bad staining and simply dig in. It's October and: IT'S FRESH SEASON!

The season lasts from October to January. The world's most famous pomegranate brand is POM. That is, POM Wonderful. With a heart instead of "O". That know how to get me, bastards ;) POM bottles are so well known and recognizable, shaped like the pomegranate itself, even with the crown on top. It doesn't work that simple on this big bottle that looks like the two pomes are one on top of the other, making the bottle look like some crazy Japanese juice packed into this cute weight for the ladies' workout. On this lovely single pom bottle for the capsules, it's just perfect. Though I'd rather drink 250ml of the juice than take the pill, I'd love to have that POMX Pills bottle.

People at POM know the magic behind the fruit and they give it all the attention so even though I think everyone should find his/her own way of eating a pomegranate, at POM they've made this incredibly beautiful commercial: see clip

Aaaahh.... Beautiful. And that's not all at all.

My favorite Korres natural cosmetics have the entire product line made with pomegranate extracts - face mask, scrub, cream, facial tissues, lip butter. see images

Finally, if I was a creative director at a restaurant, this would surely be a perfect time to include pomegranates into some meals or come up with one or two new ones, like those beautifully presented on POM site. This is how Cafe Fernando from Istanbul is doing it: see image

For making Cafe Fernando's Pomegranate Frozen Yogurt you'll need:
- 2 cups freshly-squeezed pomegranate juice
- 1+ 1/2 cup plain, whole milk yogurt
- 2/3 cup Grenadine (pomegranate syrup)
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 tsp lemon juice
+ how to make it.

Plus, freshly squeezed pomegranate juice. Elixir, Belgrade's juice bar, has this lovely mix called October Elixir that is made of pomegranate, quince and orange. Since I'm not really citrus person, I'd replace orange with the good old apple juice, but nevertheless, my God is this Oct Elixir good or what... If you let it settle clear red mixture will go down and that mushy floury quince will climb to the top of the cup. Mix them back together and they'll create this beautiful salmon pink. Ready to disappear in a blink.

Enjoy this fall, winter and pomegranates!

  4. E da ne procitah ovaj post, ne bih znala kako se nar kaze na engleskom jeziku... ili sipak, kako ga ponekad zovem.

    I jako je zdrav, ima dosta vitamina C .... i najbolji su oni iz Bara, ali kod nas na pijaci kazu da ove godine nisu uspeli, pa uvoze samo iz Makedonije, koju su nesto .... manje slatki.

    Tako da, pustiti razne tablete od ajkule i slicno, i jesti nar.
