We're a little slow on the uptake in our house, but we finally discovered the joy of pomegranite seeds. They're very juicy, sweet and yet crunchy. I think they'll become a staple in our kitchen.
Pomegranites are rich in antioxidants, polyphenols, and phytochemicals. They do everything from helping to reduce heart disease risk factors, reduce systolic blood pressure, inhibit viral infections, and may even have anti bacterial effects against dental plaque. But they can be a real pain sometimes getting to each litte seed to eat. Well, I have learned a trick that really works, so you can have your pomegranite and eat it too! Just slice it in half and invert the pomegranite over a bowl of cold water. Pull the seeds and white fleshy part all out and loosely separate. The seeds will sink to the bottom, and the white fleshy part will float to the top. Skim off the top and strain. You've got a delicious treat!
