As part of their Twelve Days Of Christmas giveaways, Earth Fare offered 2 free pomegranates with any $5 purchase one day last week. 

Even though we didn't know how to cut and eat a pomegranate, we thought it would be fun to try anyways!  As soon as we got home, we googled "How to eat a pomegranate" and found this video.

All you do is cut off the stem on top and then score the sides in quarters and pull the sections apart. To eat, just pick out the red seeds and eat!  The juice does stain so be careful!

I cut the first one for lunch today and we barely got through one section each! These were big pomegranates and there is a lot of fruit in each one.

So yummy!

Did you know? 
Pomegranates are a wonderful source of  fiber and high in vitamin C and potassium. High in antioxidants, they are helpful in prevention of cancer and heart disease.
