Happy new year!
No baking today, but I thought the first day of 2009 warranted a brightly jewelled breakfast. Instead of rubies, how about pomegranate seeds? Can't think of an orange-coloured jewel, but persimmons (or kaki/sharon fruit as they're also known) look great and taste delicious.
Finally I reckon a few almonds and a dusting of cinnamon won't go amiss, and a squirt of lemon juice lifted the persimmon so the whole dish had some zing to it. Place all of this in a pretty martini glass - or any glass for that matter - and scoff away!
Who said breakfast had to be boring??
