pomegranate

  • The word pomegranate comes from old French and means seeded apple.
  • Pomegranates contain 840 seeds.
  • Pomegranate seeds are the fresh juicy seeds from a pomegranate, and are great for smoothies and to bring colour to salads.
  • To extract the seeds from a pomegranate, cut the pomegranate in half along its equator. Hold each half upside down over a large bowl. Tap the back with a wooden spoon and the seeds will fall out into the bowl. Just pick out any pieces of pith that fall out with the seeds.
