No this isn't a food but it was too beautiful to let slip by and not share with my cooking friends. If you're from the south you may recognize this picture. I have to admit that I am from the south and if I had seen this without seeing the tree it came from I 'might' have guessed what it is but then again I 'might' not have.
While walking my baby Jesse we walked under a beautiful Magnolia tree. Most of us have seen the beautiful white flowers produced by the Magnolia but have you ever really looked at the pots? I hate to admit it but I haven't, that is unless they are on the ground and need to be raked up. I never knew they were fuzzy. I never knew they were pink. Well, this beautiful picture is of a Magnolia Pod.
Enjoy! And next time you walk by a tree of any kind, stop as I did and take just a little time to really look at its beauty.
