This lovely winter fruit is simply delicious, if you pick the right one. When shopping, find one that is fully ripe and free of bruises and cuts.
Unlike other fruits, pomegranates don't ripen after they are picked and they have a delicate skin. Often they are picked before they fully ripen and their flavor never reaches its full sweetness.
If you do luck out and find a ripe and delicious pomegranate try one of these recipes. Pomegranate seeds are a great addition to both dinner and dessert dishes.
