Are pomegranates out of season? I wanted to get one this weekend after seeing them on "Good Eats" but my grocery store doesn't have any.

I tried a pomegranate and was not impressed. It was a lot of work to get all the seeds out and then it just didn`t taste so great. Tasted kinda like cranberry, but the texture was like eating an apple seed. Not my thing, but thanks for all the ideas.

Pomegranates are said to help are to control your weight and reduce LDL Cholesterol and are full of antioxidants. They have all the sweetness of cranberries without the tartness.

One pomegranate.... about four inches in diameter has 127 calories, calcium, magnesium, vitamin K, Vitamin C and E with good fiber and zero cholesterol.

The are loaded with good nutrition...don't be afraid to try them. I eat them plain as a snack and put them into my salads....

I love pomegranates. Select pomegranates that are heavy for their size--they'll be the juiciest. Don't worry too much about the color of the rind: It can vary from completely red to reddish-brown without it affecting the quality. Do look for deep color though, and you want the outside to be shiny. If it is dull, withered, or dry looking, then the inside will be, too.

Pomegranates should be refrigerated; they'll last at least three to four weeks. Once they've been seeded, the seeds also can be frozen in a tightly sealed bag.

There's an easier way to clean a pomegranate. Score the skin in quarters and open it up. Then put each quarter underwater (a large bowl or mixing bowl works great) and use your fingers to ream the seeds from the inside. The pith is light and will float to the top; the heavier seedy fruit will sink.

I eat the seeds plain, most of the time. I like the juicy crunch you get when you bit down on a handful of them. I also use them in salads, but frankly, I like them plain best.

I keep seeing recipes with pomegranate seed. They look beautiful and are supposed to be very heathful.I have never bought a pomegranate and know nothing about them....so... How do pick a good one and do you just eat the seeds?
