These days, you don’t have to work to enjoy pomegranate. If you hate peeling away layers of bitter white pith, you can purchase small containers of jeweled seeds at the market. And if you love the flavor of pomegranate but don’t like dealing with all the seeds, you can buy bottles of pomegranate juice.
There’s something super satisfying, though, about working for your pomegranate seeds. Now’s the time to gear up for getting your hands dirty, too, since pomegranate season runs September through February (at least for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere).
Pomegranate seeds are great for snacking, tossed in salads, and as a garnish for savory dishes. Pomegranate really shines, though, in cocktails. Its vibrant red color makes a lovely splash, and its sweet tartness complements a variety of flavors. This tantalizing collection of recipes should help get you in the mood for some fall sipping. Enjoy!
