Dear fellow food-lover,

A traditional symbol of health, strength, and longevity, pomegranates have a rich history in the Mediterranean. Their tiny, strikingly beautiful seeds are packed with antioxidants, vitamin C, fiber, and iron.

Pomegranates are a versatile ingredient, and you can easily add them into your sweet and savory recipes. But hurry! Their season lasts only for a brief window of time from fall into early winter.
