Organic Pomegranate

$135 by kilo

Mollar de Elche pomegranate has traditionally been a highly prized and esteemed fruit in many civilizations. Together with the palm tree, the pomegranate tree is the most characteristic tree in Campo de Elche, and has been known from time immemorial. In Spain, the Mollar de Elche pomegranate is by far the most popular variety and is unquestionably the most widely grown in this country. Pomegranate is one of the world’s oldest known fruit, also translated as the “apple with many seeds” by the French. Inside the fruit, seeds cluster like a glimmering carpet beneath thin yellow membranes. These small red seeds are packed with health-supporting antioxidants along with deliciously sweet, tart juice. On the outside, the apple-sized fruit has a leathery shell that can range from pink to deep crimson, even russet brown. Although native to Persia (now Iran), pomegranates have become a worldwide culinary necessity, whether they’re used to garnish green salads or used as a base for jelly, sorbets and cocktails.

The foolproof way to prep Pomegranates is to use the no-mess “underwater” technique so that you can avoid any staining. Cut the Pomegranate into quarters over a paper towel. Fill a medium bowl with cold water. Hold a Pomegranate quarter under the water, seed side down. Pull edges back, exposing seeds. Run fingers over seeds to remove them. Turn fruit over, still holding underwater, and pick out remaining seeds.
