CHICKEN STUFFED MELON WITH POMEGRANATE

Cut 2 medium size cantaloupe in half making zigzag cuts. Scoop out and discard seeds. Cut melon fruit into bite-size pieces; drain melon pieces and shells. Slice off the bottom of each half a little so it will sit better. Mix melon pieces with 2 cups diced cold cooked chicken and spoon equal portions into empty shells. Top with 1/2 cup seedless green grapes and seeds from 1 pomegranate. Garnish with 1 small kiwi, sliced. Prepare lime-honey dressing; pour over and serve. To make the dressing mix together 4 tablespoons each lime juice and honey with 1/4 teaspoon each ground coriander and nutmeg.

Stirring constantly; bring to a full rolling boil and boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat. With a large metal spoon, skim off foam. Quickly pour into sterilised jars. Make about six 1/2 pint jars.

POMEGRANATE FRUIT SALAD

Peel and slice 1 avocado. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon lime juice. Peel, seed and slice 1 papaya thinly. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon lime juice. Peel 2 oranges and 1 grapefruit. Cut fruit into segments.

For the dressing take 2 tablespoons orange juice, 2 tablespoons lime juice, 2 teaspoon honey, 1/4 teaspoon hot pepper flakes, 1/2 cup vegetable oil and mix all together. Take a platter and tear 1 head Romaine lettuce and place on a platter. Add the fruits and drizzle the dressing over it. Now sprinkle the pomegranate over the salad.

FESSENJAN

Mix smashed carrots, golden onions, 2 cups pomegranate paste, 2 cups powdered (finely crushed) walnuts, salt, pepper and pinch of saffron. Let it cook very slowly for over or more than an hour. This should be continued until the walnuts are soft. Cook 4 pieces chicken breasts with onion, salt and pepper. Add the sauce and 1 tablespoon tomato paste and let it simmer for a while.
