Veggies Diaries: pomegranates in the kitchen

    October 1, 2016

    October starts today and it’s time to write down a few lines of what I started to call at some point of this blog “my veggies diaries”, my online kind of quick recipes collection, where I recollect a few ideas I like to prepare in the kitchen at my lunchtime around some random veggie in season. From the market basket of October, -which is my favourite season of the year, when trees start to over-coloring, we can go out for walks looking for mushrooms (yep, I finally live 10 minutes walking from REAL woods), it’s also my birthday in a few days btw:)-I choose to focus on pomegranate, one of the most nicely colored and photogenic fruits in season:) I told already once, here, how I fell in love with this mediterranean treasure during a trip around Turkey, a summer ago.

    In October  we also welcome back cabbages, green lifesaver, butternuts squasch, chards, turnips, beets..basically the best the ground has to offer for great technicolor soups to warm up our dinner nights. It also the perfect moment of the year to turn the oven and..bake a apple cake or to preserve the last bites of summer in jars.
