Healthy Highlight – Pomegranates

What a fruit!

The beautiful Pomegranate is the star of Middle Eastern cooking and is so versatile.

Pomegranates are high in Vitamin C which boosts your immunity and protects from disease. Vitamin C also helps the body absorb iron. In clinical trials, they have also been shown to lower cholesterol and blood pressure, as well as being a potent source of antioxidants.

How to remove the seeds: 

1. Cut in half and hold the seeded cross-section away from you

2. Gently pry open the half and (with the cross-section still facing down) hold it over a bowl whilst tapping quite firmly with a knife or large spoon.

3. The seeds should fall right out!

How to use it: 

Pomegranates have a very sweet taste and are perfect on top of yoghurt or granola, and can be blended together with smoothies.

They also add a beautiful crunchy texture to Summer salads and another level of flavour to savoury dishes.
