Sorry for the delay, but if there's anything that deserves the “better belatedly than never” tag, this duck fesenjan is it. Influenza A virus subtype H5N1 savory stew featuring duck, pomegranate, too walnuts, which is every fight every bit exotic every bit it sounds.

Keep inwards mind, I’m brand-new to Farsi food, hence this is exactly my interpretation of the ancient classic. I’m assuming similar near similar recipes, every household has their ain version, too this form of affair tin last obviously, too easily last tailored to your tastes.

The ingredients are uncomplicated too slow to manipulate. If yous cause got problem finding pomegranate syrup, or pomegranate molasses every bit it’s sometimes called, depository fiscal establishment gibe out the online retailers, but yous tin genuinely construct your own.
