The "Pamagranate"

I love edible gifts. I do.

Lucky for me, I have lots of friends and family who bake many wonderful things at Christmastime.

My friend, Debbie makes the most delicious and beautiful pizelle (Italian waffle) cookies as gifts. Eric's grandmother makes incredible peanut butter balls. And we can always count on Eric's Aunt Rita for her famous and to-die-for homemade English Toffee.

Every year I look forward to receiving their gifts. (I hope they look forward to getting their annual bottle of creme de vie from me, but that's not important right now.)

One of the most special that we all look forward to receiving each year is the Pamagranate Jelly. It's made from pomegranate juice, but it's made my by BFF, Pam. So we naturally named it Pamagranate Jelly. (See how clever we are?)

This year, because I was in a tag-designing mood, I designed some tags for Pam to attach to her famous Pamagranate. (*pats self on back*)

When I emailed them to her, she was surprised. "It says Pamagranate."

Me: "I know. That's what we call it."

*laughter from the other end of the phone* "I never knew."

Apparently, we gave the famous jelly the name, but forgot to tell her. (Que Cucufate!) Pam's Famous Pamagranate Jelly Recipe can be found here.

The Pamagranate is particularly delicious on toasted Cuban bread. I'm just sayin.'  ;-)
