Anyway, it is basically a strawberry pudding, but it also calls for pomegranate seeds to be 'strewn abouten'. Oookaaay... but strawberries and pomegranates aren't in season at the same time, are they? How did they do this?

When _are_ they in season? We get them here in Oregon during the 
holidays- and they're imported, though from where I don't know. I've 
never seen them any other time of year. Local strawberries come on in June.

I'm guessing that English strawberries were in season around the same 
time (we have similar weather, etc). I would hazard a guess that poms 
were imported from Spain (making the giant leap from the presence of a 
pom on the arms of Grenada), so I guess then the question is when are 
they in season in Spain?

Brighid's idea of dried ones is interesting. Would they have noted dried 
or fresh?
