Pomegranates.  One of the super fruits.  Pomegranates have been receiving a lot of press in recent years.  Seems this juicy fruit’s popularity is back and rightfully so.  Let’s talk pomegranate.  Pomegranates growing in Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia

The pomegranates you buy at your grocer have been on a long journey over time.  The pomegranate tree is native to Iran.  It was cultivated and naturalized over the Middle East and Mediterranean regions since ancient times.  This exoctic tree came to America when it was introduced into California by Spanish settlers in 1769. 

Pomegrantes, as mentioned, are one of the super fruits, which means they host a treasure trove of health benefits.  They contain polyphenols, a very powerful antioxidant that protects our body’s against chronic health conditions, heart disease and cancer.  Inside of a pomegrante are hundreds of arlis that are full of vitamin C.  These juicy arlis can be added to just about any dish to add antioxidant value to your meal.  We like to sprinkly some on top of a leafy goat cheese or spring salad.  How do you use Pomegranates?
