0 Pomegranate Juice

We Americans tend to think of pomegranate juice as the dark, syrupy stuff that comes in in a figure-eight shaped bottle of POM. (Way to go, marketers.) 

In the Middle East, not so much.

That's because pomegranates--the real deal--are everywhere: in crates, in boxes, in baskets. (Which is to be expected, of course; after all they're one of the oldest known fruits and are native to Persia.)  

And pomegranate juice? It doesn't come in a bulbous POM bottle. Nope, it's the fresh-squeezed kind.

If you're lucky, you just might get to squeeze your own, which is pretty fun if my crazy face tells you anything.

Cheers, friends!
