It’s all about the Poms

Love or hate them Pomegranates are a powerhouse of goodness. It’s getting the seeds out that is the issue!

Once you do you’re eating a powerful antioxidant, anti inflammatory, anti viral and blood sugar stabiliser plus an intake of vitamins C, K, folate and potassium. High in fibre, low in fat and good for urinary tract infections. 

The best way to remove seeds is to make sure the pomegranate is really ripe and not refrigerated. Follow these simple steps:

  • Roll it backwards and forwards on a hard surface then bang it hard to loosen seeds and juice.
  • Cut in half over a bowl. Most will fall out.
  • Scoop the rest out with a spoon.
  • Remove any bitter pith.
  • Eat as it is or add to salads, yoghurts or you can juice.

You might just grow to love them!
