Juicing Pomegranates


Juicing pomegranates is easier than you might think with so many health benefits.

Pomegranates are exotic and delicious fruits noted for their excellent health benefits and burst of tangy flavor. Pomegranates look a bit like an oversized apple with a deep red, leathery skin. You can find them in season between the months of October and January. Some people enjoy cutting the fruit open and dining on the seeds, while others prefer juicing pomegranates to release their antioxidant benefits.

Health Benefits of Pomegranates

There are many health benefits to juicing pomegranates. They help with gastrointestinal symptoms such as diarrhea, dysentery, and intestinal parasites. Pomegranates are rich in antioxidants called polyphenols, which fight free radicals caused by pollution, chemicals and toxins produced by the body itself. Antioxidants help prevent colds, flu, and more serious illness and help slow the signs of aging. These fruits are also rich in vitamin C, which help protect the immune system and gives skin its elasticity.

Pomegranates also contain tannins to protect the heart and prevent cardiovascular disease. juicing pomegranates

How to Eat a Pomegranate

Eating a pomegranate can be a bit of a challenge, but once you get the hang of it, it's easy and well worth the effort. Step 1 - Cut off the crown of the fruit and scoop out some of its centre core. Be careful not to touch the seeds. Step 2 - Gently score the outer rind of the pomegranate with a knife and section it into quarters. Step 3 - Peel each section about with your fingers. Step 4 - Grab a bowl and put it under your hands. Now turn each pomegranate quarter into the palm of your hand with the skin facing outward. Smack it smartly with a large metal spoon to release the seeds into the bowl. Step 5 - Be sure to pick out any remaining pieces of white flesh from the seeds and discard. The seeds are ready to eat or juice.

Juicing Pomegranates

Juicing is much easier than you might imagine. You can do this a few different ways:

Hand Juicer

Cut a pomegranate in half and press the fruit-filled half down on a hand citrus juicer. Holding the handle of the juicer, press and grind all the juice from the pomegranate. Place a piece of white paper towel into a hand strainer and place the strainer over a liquid measuring cup. Filter the juice through the paper towel and strainer until all of the juice is released into the measuring cup. Do the same with the other half of the pomegranate. juicing pomegranates
