Jewel of fruit!
Apart from the sheer beauty of it, the pomegranate is packed with nutrients and flavour. Can there be anything as beautiful as garnet red crystals sparkling on top of a salad or dessert? The easiest way to get to the fruit is to slice the pomegranate in half and then to hold it over a bowl and knock the hard skin till the fruit falls out, it’s easier but you will still get splashed with its juice if you get over enthusiastic. Pomegranate juice also has many uses, it’s tannins and sweetness make it a key part in many middle eastern dishes.
