Pomegranate

You know, our mission is to use as many seasonal fruits and vegetables as possible when cooking. Pomegranate is typically in season in the Northern Hemisphere from September to February. Pomegranate is characterized by its versatile use. This fruit contains hundreds of edible seeds what are covered with red and juicy arils. You can eat the whole arils including the fiber-rich tiny seeds. Usually when we are talking about pomegranate seeds, we mean seeds and aril together.

Seeds are used in baking, cooking, juice blends, meal garnishes, smoothies, and alcoholic beverages, such as cocktails and wine. You can add them to anything you like. I really like to eat pomegranate raw. I use the seeds very often in salads, check my Tabbouleh and Thai Turkey Meatball recipe. We also like using pomegranate molasses, you can find it in the Pan Roasted Endive with Gremolata and Muhammara. I used pomegranate vinegar together with molasses in the Lemon Chicken with Beetroot and Feta Salad.

This fruit contains important vitamins and minerals. It is a rich source of vitamin C and vitamin K. Pomegranates are also a good source of folate, copper, vitamin B6. And it is very healthy to eat them raw.
