Glazed Pomegranate Pork Ribs on plate

Glazed Pomegranate Pork RibsI came up with this recipe when I was actually craving a tart apple pork dish, but had no apples. Luckily, we have an abundance of pomegranates sitting around, so pomegranate pork was to be made. I can now report that this has my tart apple pork beat. Not only does the pomegranate compliment the meat perfectly, but the acidity of its juice really tenderizes the meat. It falls apart so easily without the need for a pressure cooker. This is an awesome one pan dish. I also adore its holiday colours!


Fried Spam on plate with bread

Fried SpamWhen my husband and I were dating, he told his friends that I grew up in Plum Nelly; plum out of the country and nelly out of the world.
