Featured Ingredient: Pomegranates

Featured Ingredient: Pomegranates

Pomegranates are one of my favorite fall/winter fruits. Besides having a sweet taste, they are also beautiful to photograph. The edible part of the pomegranate is actually its seeds, which are also known as arils. Pomegranates are high in Vitamin C, potassium and fiber. Roughly 1 pomegranate is equal to 1 cup of fruit.

Do you know how to cut a pomegranate? I can’t say that I know the right way, but I put together a series of photos to show you how I cut them. Before you start…BEWARE… pomegranate juice stains!


All the work is well worth it! Enjoy!
