Over the past few weeks I’ve seen a welcome new addition to the grocery store fruit section…the pomegranate. This round, red jewel surfaces alongside pumpkins and squashes in the fall. I’ve always known about the super health benefits that pomegranate seeds and juice can provide, but I’ve always been stumped on how to disassemble this curious fruit.
I recently watched a few youtube videos on how to get out the seeds and honestly, they all made it more complicated than it needs to be! Some advise on soaking the whole scored pomegranate in water, others put the seeds in a bowl of water after they’re taken out. There’s really no one right way, but this is how I go about it and I find it quick and simple.
These seeds are also a delicious addition to my yogurt and morning cereal. Now I’m looking forward to adding them to my favorite baked sweet breads, like banana, pumpkin, and carrot raisin.
