Eat it raw,juice it or turn it into a meal!

    Nice info. I can add an ease way to get to those tasty nuggets.

    With the pointy crown up, cut through the crown and half way down one side no deeper than the skin. Do the same on the other side. Next, make the same cut marks going perpendicular to the first. It will look like a cross.

    Now, put the blade of the knife into one cut and open the fruit slightly. Do the same with the second cut until you can break the fruit in half by hand. Break it into quarters. Remove the white peel, turn inside out and eat the juicy nuggets! Be aware though, the juice can strain your clothes.

    It is a very informative post. I didn't know many of the health benefits of Pomegranate before, which I came to know from your post.

    I also found Apple is very good for our health. So, I started to take one Apple everyday. Check the health benefits of Apple here:
