Tip of the Day
Pomegranate is unlike any other fruit. It has a red leathery peel, and inside the membranes hold clusters of small, edible seeds with juicy red fruit around the seeds. Aside from being flavorful, pomegranates provide potassium, vitamin C and antioxidants.
Select one that has a deep color and is heavy for its size. Pomegranates can be messy to prepare. Try this three-step process:
- Cut off the crown, then cut the pomegranate into sections.
- Place the sections in a bowl of water, then roll out the arils (juice sacs with seeds) with your fingers. Discard the rest.
- Drain out the water. Enjoy the arils — seed and all — or add them to salads and desserts.
