Pomegranate

Pomegranates are widely grown throughout the Mediterranean region.  Throughout the streets of Istanbul, there are huge piles of whole pomegranates at cafés and on street carts waiting to be freshly pressed into pomegranate juice or mixed into a martini.  My colleague, Sarah, and I each purchased a glass of pomegranate juice from a vendor between the Blue Mosque and the Hagia Sofya.  While his partner took our Turkish lira, the cart vendor pressed pomegranate halves into a vice-like device, straining the pressed fruit so that only the fresh juice remained.  It was amazingly delicious!
