When my daughter and I were browsing all of the fresh fruits and veggies at St. Lawrence Market a couple of months ago, I spotted a display of pomegranates and decided to buy a couple. My little one had never had the pleasure of cutting open a pomegranate and chowing down on the delicious seeds inside up until that point of her life, and since I have so many fond memories of doing exactly that with my sister when I was a kid, I figured it might be a fun activity for the 2 of us to do together.
Naturally, she wasn’t a fan of pomegranate seeds, but rather than chucking them in the garbage, I decided to search for a couple of pomegranate recipes I could make so they didn’t go to waste.
As it turns out, pomegranates are an amazing superfood that are filled with health benefits. They are fabulous sources of vitamins A, C, and E, have antioxidant and antiviral properties, and some suggest they even help keep wrinkles at bay!
