Under the Moroccan Sun.

Fruits that shone like jewels in the afternoon sun

Food has always been an essential part of travel for me. Weaving through a local market and discovering new cuisines can tell you more about a country than staying in any tourist-filled hotel ever would.

 

This is a photo of ruby red pomegranates and juicy oranges sold by a street vendor in Morocco.

Pomegranate seeds are added to various dishes to add bursts of sweetness to rich meat tagines or starchy couscous. The seeds can also be pressed to make fresh pomegranate juice which is high in antioxidants and vitamin C.
