praline, Persephone and the Pomegranate Seeds

Aside from Eve’s apple and Persephone’s pomegranate, there are few edibles in literature more famous than the tea-drenched madeleine that awakens Proust’s memory of childhood in Remembrance of Things PastExcept, as the Guardianrecently noted, a handwritten first draft of the book reveals that the original delicate finger-sized cake was not a delicate finger-sized cake at all. It was … toast.

Coppeneur Mixes Sweet and Savory in its Chocolate Creations

For those tired of the same old chocolate rabbits and tiny foil-wrapped eggs at Easter, the German company Coppeneur makes chocolates with rosebuds, tea and even red beans.

Wasabi and Seaweed, Dark Beer, and Apple Strudel. That may sound like a full meal, but those are just a few of the chocolate flavors produced at the Confiserie Coppeneur.
For Easter, their pralines are filled with egg liqueur, pomegranate and Kir Royal. The company’s policy is that if it tastes good, it will probably be even better with chocolate.

這個字 pomegranate 是10月18日值得一記的單字
故事是中餐的沙拉美不勝收 WWS夫婦難得拿出相機照一張
餐中並盤點其內容 作記 列出材料單 BILL OF MATERIAL
列到第12/13項 有一晶瑩剔透的子他們無法說出 稱為 神秘之子
問主人 知道是"石榴子"
她又說出一英文 因為石榴石garnet 是她的收藏品

我知道它的英文是P開頭 莎士比亞的作品引用過
然後David 用手機查出是pomegranate和 garnet
現在WWS夫婦終於知道所有的食材了


再查一下

Pomegranates


The last word on pomegranates belongs, as did the first, to William Shakespeare:
Wilt thou be gone? it is not yet near day.
It was the nightingale, and not the lark,
That pierced the fearful hollow of thine ear.
Nightly she sings on yon pomegranate-tree.
Believe me, love, it was the nightingale.
Romeo and Juliet, III, 5
Law: Go to, sir; you were beaten in Italy for picking a kernel out of a pomegranate.
You are a vagabond and no true traveler.

All's Well That Ends Well, II, 3

Persephone and the Pomegranate Seeds

A myth submitted to the site by Musammod Nida Begum 

The Underworld, Zimbawe

Demeter and Zeus had a beautiful daughter named Persephone. Demeter loved Persephone very much and wanted to keep her near always. So one day, while Persephone was out alone picking flowers, Hades came up from the dark Underworld on his great black chariot and stole her away.

Demeter was so upset. She searched everywhere but she couldn't find Persephone. She was so sad that she forbade the trees and plants to grow while her daughter was missing.

But Persephone did not love Hades and to punish him, she decided she would not eat or drink. Hades, who was God of the Underworld, fell in love with Persephone and wanted to marry her, but Demeter refused to allow it. Zeus saw how unhappy this made Demeter and Persephone, so he ruled that Persephone should live with Hades in the dark Underworld for three months of the year and nine months above in the sunlight. Demeter was overjoyed to have Persephone back, but her happiness did not last. Zeus found out that Persephone has sucked on some pomegranate seeds while down in the Underworld.

This meant that Persephone had to go back. Because the plants had all died, people did not have enough food. Therefore Zeus decided that Persephone should come home. There was one condition- she could not have had anything to eat or drink while she was in the Underworld.

Ever after, there was a winter for three months each year.
