Pomegranates and Parsis go back a few millennia. Like the fish, the pomegranate is one of our central symbols: its color, its seeds, its shape and structure all suggest fertility, joy, and abundance. Ritual trays of fruit for religious ceremonies require a pomegranate. Getting the juice out of pomegranates can be a challenge, with juice flying all over, but a large Mexican-style hinged juicer for squeezing citrus halves works nicely. This is Chez Panisse’s formula for a superlative pomegranate ice.
