The other day, I was happily surprised by an email from the folks at Pom Wonderful, wondering if I would like to sample their product. Of course, I was thrilled. I am very into health and wellness and pomegranates have many health benefits.
The pomegranate is one of the earliest cultivated fruits, revered throughout history as a symbol of health, fertility and rebirth. Some cultures even believed it had profound mystical and healing powers.
Pom Wonderful sent me a case to try, and I was very pleased. These were the 8 oz bottles (though it comes in larger sizes too) and frankly quite adorable. They are ideally shaped and fit right in the palm of your hand. As for the taste, rich and delicious – sweet and just a bit tart. Pom Wonderful has no added sugar, coloring or preservatives. It’s all natural and full of antioxidants. They are gluten-free and a great source of potassium as well.
Their website PomWonderful is a wealth of information where you can find such recipes as
Pom Poached Pears with Pom Gelato by Chef Jake Linzinmeir, and so many other delectables. I have used Pom in a spritzer, in cocktails (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic), in marinades, over yogurt, in salad dressing, and am now trying some of the other recipes. Absolutely delicious.
And, it’s also great straight from the bottle or over ice. Makes me feel like I’m drinking in nature – a very good feeling.
