The Pomegranate, native to Persia and now grown throughout the Mediterranean, has been an icon of success for many millennia. Its recognition stems from its appearances in ancient Egyptian scripts dating back to 1500 BC, on coins in ancient Greece, and as the icon representing the fertility of the ‘promised land’ demonstrated by Moses. With it’s delicious, sweet juice and deep red color, the pomegranate represents more than just a fruit.
Pomegranates are brimming with healthy antioxidants, vitamins, potassium, folic acid, and iron. Pomegranate seeds may be eaten individually, juiced, or used in baking and desserts.
