Pomegranate is the culinary symbol for the Greek goddess Aphrodite. Aphrodite is the goddess of love, so it makes sense that her name is where the word 'aphrodisiac' originates from.
Not only is the pomegranate a powerful symbol in poems and novels, it's frequently used in Christianity, meaning hope and eternal life. In China it's used as medicine to treat depression, settle upset stomachs, and neutralize internal parasites (um, what?!).
Pomegranates are filled with antioxidants that support blood flow. So mix up a glaze for your dinner tonight to wow your Valentine.
