Here at The FruitGuys we love fruit lore, and the pomegranate is a veritable jackpot of fruit mythos. The Silk Road is jammed with kings, goddesses, saints, and sinners holding up signs extolling the virtues of the noble pomegranate: invincibility, wisdom, wealth, and love.
Seeker, look for yourself into the pomegranate’s treasure chest. Just score and open to behold the rubies and the riches! Ye shall be rewarded with vitamin C (40% RDA) and an abundance of antioxidants.
- Slice off the pomegranate’s crown, and score the rind in 3–4 places.
- Break the fruit apart in a large bowl of cool water to avoid spraying juice.
- Separate the red juicy pods from membrane and the rind under water.
- Discard rind and membrane, drain seeds, and use.
