Pomegranates

pomegranates

While pomegranates have been with us for 1000s of years, recently there has been renewed interest in their 'superfood' properties, particularly pomegranate juice.

But nothing can replace the fizz and buzz on your taste buds of the original fruit, which is used now in salads, dressings, desserts and everything in between.

Punica granatum

Pomegranates burst into an explosion of flavour when eaten, but try not to crunch down on the seeds inside the pomegranate flesh (called an aril) as they can be bitter...

Look for fruit that has shiny, smooth skin and is heavy for it's size and don't worry too much about light marking on the outside, that doesn't affect the seeds...

The seeds inside the pomegranate is the part of this fruit you eat, but be careful, pomegranates are a bit like the beetroot of the fruit world, their bright red juice can go everywhere when you're preparing them!

Pomegranates are an excellent source of Vitamin C, Vitamin K, folate and potassium.
