LOVE me some pom! Pomegranates are now in season and these juicy red fruits are just as sweet on nutrition as they are on taste! Pomegranate, which protects against heart disease and cancer, is full of phytochemical compounds. The juice and seeds are the edible parts of the pomegranate fruit, both of which are packed with nutrients. A cup of pomegranate juice actually has more antioxidants than blueberries, cranberries, green tea, and red wine!
The seeds are the best part. So juicy, crunchy, sweet, and refreshing! But, do you know the trick?! It’s virtually impossible to get these little buggers out of the fruit without getting bright red juice pretty much everywhere. But there is a way! Just cut the pomegranate in half and immerse in water. Pull apart the fruit within the water to avoid the mess. The seeds will sink to the bottom while the debris will float, remove as much of the skin and white debris as possible (it’s edible, just bitter!) Strain the seeds and enjoy! Pomegranate seeds are amazingly tasty alone, in a salad, in a parfait, and even as a healthy ice cream topping!
