Imagine the range of emotions that must’ve washed over the first person to find a pomegranate. From confusion upon first seeing it - is this an apple? An onion?, to disappointment after taking a bite of the skin, to shock after opening it, to complete and utter joy while eating each and every tart and delicious seed.
We love the pomegranate in part because it’s so unique. We also love it because of how good it is for your overall wellness. Pom seeds are bursting with antioxidants, packing more anti-inflammatory properties pound-for-pound than any other fruit. That’s huge in helping prevent the onset of cancer. Pomegranates also show promise in helping diabetics manage their blood sugar levels and in lowering cholesterol.
While pomegranate plants originate in central Asia and India, they’ve found a home in the Arizona desert. They don’t roll their eyes when you tell them it’s a dry heat here - in fact, they thrive in arid conditions and grow quickly in direct sunlight. So it’s no surprise that Chef Teresa Hansen has put the pom at the center of a southwest-inspired salsa recipe that infuses Good Things Coming Pomegranate Jellies to help you relax with every chip dip.
