A jewel among winter fruits, the pomegranate's distinct citrus flavor and bright red color makes these salsas, sauces, and jams absolutely shine. The window for fresh pomegranates is small, so take advantage and enjoy these juicy gems while you can. Removing the pomegranate seeds, also known as arils, from the fruit can be messy, so we suggest buying small containers of the seeds. Of course, if you have the time to harvest the seeds from the membrane, go for it. It's quite fun. Sprinkle seeds on salads, yogurt, oatmeal, or use them in any of these delicious pomegranate recipes.
