Sunnah Recipes: Pomegranate Bark


The best of foods are those mentioned by Allah (swt) in the Qur'an & those from the Sunnah! We want to share this recipe using Pomegranate, a fruit mention in the Qur'an in the Ayah: 'And [We produce] gardens of grapevines and olives and pomegranates, similar yet varied. Look at [each of] its fruit when it yields and [at] its ripening. Indeed in that are signs for a people who believe.' [6:99]
