We saw fresh pomegranates in Aldi the other day for about 69 cents and my son picked out the one in the bowl above.
Observing the shape, I see that it is a curvy pentagon. When I cut it open, that geometric shape is confirmed. I can clearly see five sections that remind me of a star, an asterisk or a snowflake.
The inside of the rind has little curvy indentations which nestle the seeds. There are also thin membranes which keep them in place. What a package!
I extracted the seeds by hand and removed all of the membrane pieces from the bowl.
You can find recipes using pomegranates here at Simply Recipes. Also check out the nutritional data. Pomegranates have antioxidant properties, and are a great source of potassium and Vitamin C. (These web links are great sites for other foods, too.)
