Pomegranates are rich in fiber and incredibly high in antioxidants. We all know the health benefits of antioxidants. There is countless research showing that foods high in polyphenols (like pomegranates and olive oil) and good for the heart, body and mind.

How to Cut a Pomegranate:

Roll the fruit first to loosen the seeds.

Notice the gentle ridges along the outside of the pomegranate.

Score around the ridges, just through the red part of the pomegranate skin (blossom end to stem end).

Be careful not to cut through the seeds, just the skin.

Next use your fingers o gently pry open the pomegranate.

It should open easily and expose the seeds.

Place the seed-side face down over a bowl, and tap the skin with a wooden spoon, squeezing a little to release the seeds.

What is an aril?

When a pomegranate is cut, you might assume the arils are the seeds, but this is a misconception.

A pomegranate aril is a seed pod inside a pomegranate.

The clear, reddish fruit surrounds a tiny, crisp seed, and the whole aril is edible.

Pomegranate seeds are different from the arils, which are the sweet, juice-filled pulps that this fruit is known for.

The seeds themselves appear to be perfectly edible. They are a good source of antioxidants, insoluble fiber, and punicic acid.

The rind and the white membranes surrounding the arils are bitter and we don’t suggest eating them.
