Pomegranate 101



This just in: Pomegranates are the king of all fruits. Have you ever wondered all the magical things you can prepare with these seasonal seeds" Wonder no more, because today we’re exploring the wonderful world of all things Pomegranate.Deliciously crowned, this fruit can be eaten fresh for a delightful snack, sprinkled atop a salad for flavor and flair, juiced, blended into a smoothie, and can also bedazzle your favorite cocktail.
Before we get too far ahead of ourselves, let’s start out with a tutorial on how to properly dive into these bright red beauties. There are many ways to crack open a Pomegranate, but the proper way is to score along each vein lengthwise to the bottom of the fruit. This allows it to open without much force applied and with minimal mess (unlike the wooden spoon technique).
 

 
Now that we have our Pomegranate seeds separated from the peel, let’s juice them! Personally, I find it hard to resist snacking at this point – I always save a few as a tasty reward.
 

 
 
Pomegranates add just the right amount of sweetness and tart to any fruit smoothie. They’re also incredibly delicious in a granola parfait!  
Blueberry-Pomegranate Smoothie
 
This tangy superfruit is loaded with antioxidants and bursting with a daily dose of Vitamin C and K.
Fun fact: as one of the oldest cultivated fruits, Pomegranates have long been revered as a symbol of immortality, fertility, and abundance.

Blackened Shrimp with Pomegranate-Orange Salsa
 
Since it’s Friday, kick off the weekend with a celebratory cocktail. It’s basically the equivalent to drinking 10 cups of green tea (minus the sugar, soda, and vodka).
