Refresh your life with Pomegranate
November is National Pomegranate Month.
Pomegranate is not only a fruit famous for its meaning (“apple of murderous seeds”) but also valued since ancient times for its household and its medicinal properties.
Pomegranate is a rich source of Vitamin B5 and Potassium, and its edible seeds contain high concentrations of fiber and unsaturated oil.
To choose a juicy sweet pomegranate it should be an unblemished fruit that feels heavy in the hand. The larger the fruit, the better developed and sweeter the flesh inside.
Making pomegranate juice is very simple, just requires a little patience:
- After carefully scoring the fruit with a knife, separate the seeds (arils) from the white membrane with your fingers.
- Be careful not to get the juice on your clothes because it stains.
- Put the fleshy seeds into a extractor or blender, process, strain and then refrigerate or freeze.
You may want to try mixing pomegranate juice with other beverages for a nutritious drink, or spice it up with spirits for refreshing results.
