Fresh pomegranate juice

.
This nice man at Jerusalem's Machane Yehuda open-air market was happy to press me some sweet pomegranate juice today.

See?! Here is comes!
.
As our grandmothers always said, "Kos briut!" (a glass full of good health!).
.
The shuk is full now with big red pomegrantes because it is a symbolic food for Rosh Hashana, the Jewish new year starting this Sunday evening.

(This little look into the huge fresh produce market is for Our World Tuesday meme.)

What grows in nature, certainly can only be good. Over here, they are mostly still green.

Thank you for the inspiration. Please have a good Tuesday.

Dina, did you know that we (I mean Iranians) have the same tradition of eating pomegranate on some of our holidays? Pomegranate is a big deal on the Yalda night. I love it when I find out cross-cultural similarities.

P.S. Just came to say hi to you. It's been a while. Hope you are doing great.

Dimple said...

I like pomegranates, but it is certainly a lot of work to eat one! Having some one juice it for you is a real help.

I hope you enjoy your holiday!

I love pomegranate juice. What a way to have it served.

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

I could try that. The juice looks good.

I would love fresh pomegranate juice!

Hels said...

*nod* the timing is perfect. All the shanah tovah cards I have received this week have some connection to pomegranates.

Have a happy, healthy and sweet New Year!

Friends, thank you, I drink "To your health!"

"Green," it is great to see you again. I follow your Chicago Photos faithfully. Always nice and unusual shots of my hometown.

We drank a lot of this when we were kids, now I prefer orange juice...

Pomegranates are beautiful and so are the trees they grow on! We have them here in California too. However, it has been decades since I've attempted to eat one! I recall them being rather tart...those tiny little kernels of red juiciness!

This looks so good, Dina! I've never had pomegranate juice, but at the next opportunity I must try it.

Rob Mandy said...

Oh yes, that would be absolutely perfect right now!

I can't wait until the fall rains. I purchased a pom tree. I love them both visually, symbolically and to eat

Dina, in class today I lectured on the 7 fruits of the Land, and I remembered your pictures from yesterday. With permission, I will show them in class as the AFTER when I show the pics of the "on the vine" BEFORES.

Many Thanks

Dina said...

Friends, sounds like we all have to get together for a juice party.

Dr. M, tiffadal. I'm always happy if my pictures teach someone something.

Suzanne said...

Oh yummy! I just bought one today at the supermarket. A far cry from Mahane Yehuda but we can toast. 'Here's to life! May is be sweet Dina!"

JM said...

We should have it here too.
