If you head out to your local Wal-Mart, Kroger, or other grocery chain, you'll now see these big bins of interesting red fruits--pomegranates. They've been enjoyed for centuries in arid places such as the middle east, and now is the season for them to show up here.
They have these lovely, bright red arils, or berries, inside of them. Now, the trick is to get to the berries without squirting the bright red, staining juice all over the place.
I especially love them because they are jam-packed with healthy antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. Check out a California based info site here: http://www.pomegranates.org/home.shtml. Try one and let me know what you think!
