A great fruit to eat during the cold winter months is a pomegranate.
But have you ever had an actual pomegranate fruit?
Here is what they look like.
To prep, just slice in half and then into quarters. Fill a bowl with lukewarm water and soak the pomegranate quarters to remove the edible seeds. The white pith in the fruit is not edible. Remove the seeds.
Once the seeds are all removed, strain them and then refrigerate the pomegranate seeds.
They taste much better when they are cold and crunchy!

A great snack idea for the winter months!
Not only are they tasty and crunchy, bursting with juice but they are really good for you!
Pomegranate seeds are low in calories and high fiber. They also are a good source of vitamin C and vitamin K. You can sprinkle the pomegranate seeds on salads, yogurt, or just eat them right out of a bowl! DELISH!
And for those who are inclined to drink, pomegranate has become a popular drink mixer for martinis.
So however you like to have your shot of pomegranate juice, it’s still a great choice of fruit!
