This beautiful fruit contains jewel-like kernels which are just as precious as they appear. At Miöja HQ in Stanford, the Overberg, we are lucky enough to have an abundance of Pomegranates at our padstals as we head into winter. Stacked with Vitamin C and antioxidants, they are just the thing to boost immunity and ward off seasonal sniffles.
The padstal at Madre’s Kitchen- a local eatery and the home of Sir Robert Stanford Wines, offers free shots of freshly pressed pomegranate juice as a pick-me -up for their customers. An excellent gift when you consider that each tot comes with so many benefits.
Pomegranates are anti- ageing, a tonic for the heart, a potent anti-inflammatory, an immune booster and with high levels of anti-oxidants is a powerful protector against cell damage through free- radicals. The white pith is an excellent parasite formula.
Not sure how to use it? To open a pomegranate, score the skin into five segments and break open the fruit into a bowl of water, to avoid the staining spatters of juice. Continue to separate out the kernels into the bowl of water. The pith will float to the surface and the seed will sink to the bottom. Pour off the water and the pith and you’ll be left with handfuls of glossy rubies.
For the full benefits of pomegranate, eat it raw and freshly extracted from its skin. Juice the kernels in a masticating juicer, and drink either neat or diluted with some freshly squeezed orange juice. Scatter them into a salad of dark green leaves with a honeyed dressing or drop them into a fruit salad for little bursts of flavor.
Pomegranate is highly healing throughout the body when taken internally, but is also an elixir for the skin. When applied to the skin it invigorates collagen and elastin production, prevents moisture loss, and stimulates cell renewal. It also has photo-protective properties and slows the growth of tumors, making it a valuable ally against skin cancers.
Miöja’s Pomegranate Vitalising Day Cream brings these precious properties to you in a jar. Suitable for both oily and dry skins, it is of particular benefit to those with dull or congested skin. Find out more here.
