This past weekend, Jimmy and I picked and squeezed pomegranates at my family's farm. It is a tradition to head home this time of year and make this juice for jam. My uncle has an old-fashioned make-shift "juicer" that makes this process fun and a group event. We literally have designated stations for the family: the pickers, the washers, the sorters and the crusher. My uncle is the only crusher and he has it down to an art. Twenty gallons later, we popped open coronas and added a little pomegranate juice. It is a perfect way to end a great day.
