    • MYO Pomegranate Juice

      How to Make Pomegranate Juice Pomegranates are highly touted for their nutrients and antioxidants. Making your own fresh homemade pomegranate juice is easy and the flavor is amazing. One medium size pomegranate will yield approximately half a cup of juice.
      In the fall, pomegranates are frequently on sale for as little as .25 each!

      First, cut the crown of the pomegranate off. The Crown is the top (kind of fuzzy-looking) point. Gently score the skin of the pomegranate in quarters, then press your thumb into the white core membrane, gently pulling the sections apart (much like an orange).

      Next invert each section over a bowl to collect the seeds as they pop out of the membrane. Once all of the seeds have been separated from the membrane and skin, place them in a ziploc bag and seal it. Gently mash the pomegranate pieces together, thereby "juicing" them without crushing the seeds themselves (which can impart a bitterness to the juice).

      Strain the juice with a cheesecloth or fine sieve to remove any pulp. If you so desire you can add sugar to sweeten. The nutritive qualities of the juice are highest when consumed right away. Use within 48 hours.

      Pomegranate juice has been shown in studies to offer significant health benefits incuding Lung Cancer prevention, fights breast cancer, slows prostate cancers, stabalizes PSA levels, protects neonatal brain, prevention of osteoarthritis, lowers blood pressure and cholesterol levels and is a natural plaque preventer in dental care.
