What are pomegranates good for? pomegranate

Researchers report that they are rich in antioxidants that can keep bad LDL cholesterol from oxidizing (American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, May 2000). This degradation of LDL seems to be an initial step in the development of atherosclerosis. In addition, pomegranate juice, like aspirin, can help keep blood platelets from clumping together to form unwanted clots. [SOURCE]

Why not have your antioxidants and your calcium in one sitting?

Pomegranate Ice Cream Recipe

3 cups of whipping cream
1 cup of milk
1/2 cup of sugar
1 vanilla bean, split
4 large egg yolks

In a saucepan, heat the cream, milk, sugar and vanilla bean until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture is hot but not boiling.

Whisk egg yolks in a bow and gradually add 1 cup of the cream mixture. When smooth, add it all back into the pan.
