Pomegranates, often called the “jewel of winter” are unusual fruits with bright red juice and many seeds.

The name pomegranate comes from two French words, “pome” and “granate” literally meaning “apple with many seeds”.

Pomegranates are a good source of vitamin C and also provide powerful anthocyanins and ellagic acid.

Culinary Caution! The best way to get the benefits of the antioxidant-rich pomegranate is to enjoy them fresh. When using pomegranate juice, mix one ounce juice with seven ounces of low-sodium sparkling mineral water – pomegranate juice is quite high in sugar.

Selecting and Storing Pomegranate

Choose pomegranates that are heavy for their size and have a bright, fresh color and blemish-free skin. Refrigerate for up to 2 months or store in a cool, dark place for up to a month. Seeds can be refrigerated for up to three days.
