One of the prettiest fruits used in desserts is the ubiquitous pomegranate. It originated in Iran and northern India but is cultivated in farms and gardens wherever conditions allow. It is eaten fresh and made into jams and jellies, it is incorporated into salads, savory dishes, and it is beautifully included in a plethora of gorgeous and flavorful desserts.
