Pomegranate--an ancient fruit with great power to heal and prevent disease. Research has revealed that antioxidant polyphenols in pomegranates can be an important addition to your arsenal against cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, and strokes.
More importantly, here's how to open one up:
1. Cut off crown of pomegrate.
2. Score the fruit deep down the outside walls of the membrane down to the base.
3. Put into a large bowl of cold water.
4. After soaking awhile, gently pry the five sections apart. The pips are the fruit and will sink to the bottom of the bowl. The membranes will float to the top. Drain the bowl and eat the fruit or pips. The fruit can also be frozen for future use. Bon appetit!
