Grown throughout Asia, the Mediterranean and in California, pomegranates are oval red fruit with edible seeds. If you’re a fan of these ruby red seeds, you need to act fast. In this country, pomegranates are available only in October and November.
Yes, it takes a few extra minutes to extract the bright red seeds of a pomegranate, but their sparkling sweet-tart flavor makes it all worthwhile. To get at the seeds, cut pomegranate in half and dig the seeds out with a spoon, removing any light-colored membrane that may adhere.
