The pomegranate, bright, ruby-reddish colored fruits with a hard shell, has been cultivated since ancient times. The pomegranate is said to have originate in the region extending from Iran to India. In the late 16th century, the fruits was introduced into Spanish America and reached California in 1769 by way of Spanish settlers.
Today, the pomegranate is cultivated throughout the world in warmer climates. India is one of the largest producers.
Using Farah’s (our cousin) technique, of soaking the entire fruit in icy water for about 20 minutes, removing the seeds was quick and easy.
There are many health benefits to pomegranate juice. Enjoy!
