Molly over at Pom Wonderful sent me a case of their pomegranate juice to try out, and tell you all about. I’m sure you’ve heard of pomegranates. My Mom would buy them for us as a treat around Thanksgiving time, We called them Indian Apples. Prying the seeds from the bitter rind was fun, and there was the sweet/tart reward.
POM has spent $25 million on research, and the juice doesn’t just taste good, but has many health benefits. "and the concentrated Polyphenols make it the most potent antioxidant in nature." According to Michael Davidson M.D.
If you’re curious, you can check out the health benefits, recipes, and more at Molly’s Pom Blog
No longer just a treat, and we no longer have to peel, the juice can be had in most stores. I like it cold with a splash of seltzer. I’ll see if I can get us some coupons.
Much appreciated Molly, and if you need a second opinion you’ve got my address!
