Pomegranates are in-season right now!

Looking for a fruit that's delicious, healthy and historic? Look no further than the pomegranate!
  • Pomegranates are packed with flavor: the seeds are crunchy & tasty and the juice is tart & luxurious.
  • Pomegranates packed with nutrients: plenty of Vitamin C, B-Vitamins, Potassium and Fiber.
  • And pomegranates are packed with history: in Greek mythology, Hades tricked Persephone into eating 6 pomegranate seeds when she was his prisoner in the underworld, so we get 6-months of cold weather each year. Oops!
  • Pomegranates also feature prominently in Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Now that's a famous fruit!
OK, what's next? After grabbing some pomegranates at the store you'll want to know how to break them down. Our favorite method is to cut the fruit in half, hold it over a bowl and whack it with the back of the spoon. The seeds should fall right out! Another popular method is to cut the pomegranate in half and submerge in a bowl of water. As you shake, the seeds will sink and the inedible pulp will float to the top. Turns out people have invented some easy & fun pomegranate prep techniques over the last 5 thousand years!

Once you've harvested some fresh, vibrantly-red pomegranate seeds or bought some antioxidant-rich pomegranate juice, which delicious recipes should you make? FoodPair to the rescue! We've culled through thousands of years of dishes to present our 6 favorites. Enjoy!
