When my sister and I were young, our parents would lay out newspapers and give each of us half of a pomegranate. Seed by seed, we would enjoy the burst of the skin and suck on the juice. It probably kept us entertained for an hour each time they put the exotic fruit in front of us.
Pomegranates are one of the superfoods of fall. Harvested from August – December, they are rich in folate, vitamin C, and antioxidants. In fact, they have more antioxidants than red wine or blueberries. They also benefit the heart and blood vessels, and are excellent for female reproductive systems. Add them to salads or smoothies, or use in a sauce.
