Today’s guest blogger, Amanda, a busy mother of 2 loves to cook and entertain incorporating staples from the anti inflammatory kitchen. Today, she shares her tips for picking the right anti aging all star, the Pomegranate.
One of the reasons I love the holidays is because I have an excuse to indulge in two of my favorite hobbies: decorating and entertaining. This year, I am inspired by the plentiful bounty of pomegranates. These little red treasures are filled with versatility and creative culinary opportunities. Because Pomegranates can be stored at room temperature for up to a month, they are useful as a unique and edible decoration on a table-scape. The sweet-tart flavor of the arils (seed sacks) are packed with powerful anti-aging antioxidants.
Picking the right Pomegranate:
1. Choose pomegranates based on weight, as heavier poms have more juicy arils.
2. A darker, deeper red pomegranate will have a sweeter, less tart flavor.
3. Pomegranate juice will stain anything it comes into contact with, so cut your Pom on a non-porous surface.
Now that you’ve picked the right one, how do you prepare it without making a mess? Stay tuned for tips on how to extract the seeds easily!
