Jewel-like pomegranate seeds are extremely versatile and add a burst of sweetness to everything they're added to. Choose pomegranates with smooth, shiny skin which are heavy for their size – they'll be juicier. To remove the seeds, cut in half and, using a wooden spoon, bash the back of the pomegranate over a bowl. Pomegranate seeds can be added as a bright finishing touch to all sorts of salads, tagines and side dishes but can also star on their own.
All the best Jan
