The pomegranate symbolizes the fertility of the goddess and is representative of Persephone, daughter of Demeter. This delicious sorbet is easy to make, and can be prepared as part of ritual or in advance.
You can either squeeze the fruit juices yourself, or buy them commercially prepared. While you prepare this sorbet, give thanks to the Dark Mother for the blessings of the harvest and the changing of the seasons.

- 1/3 C. orange juice
