Pom power



 I have recently discovered pomegranates and quite honestly, cannot figure out why it took me so long.  They are amazing, delicious, antioxidant filled little bits of goodness.  They are  yummy on salads, great in health drinks, and delish as a little snack.  They also freeze well. At first they baffled me but I found a great tutorial on line of how to easily separate the arils from the rind.  It goes like this:

This is a pomegranate

Cut it in quarters
Break apart the rind separating the arils.   The rind floats, the arils sink. Pull the bits of rinds out of the bowl and throw them away.

Strain the water and what you have left are useable pomegranate arils.
