One of my favorite things to do on a Sunday morning (while hubby is sleeping in) is going to the wet market and checking out the fresh and seasonal produce.

Pomegranates have always been one of my favorite fruits. I recall when I was younger, we only had this fruit once or twice a year. Back then, I asked my mom why we couldn’t have this delicious fruit more often, and she told me that they weren’t always available ~ Pomegranates are seasonal (available Sept-Jan) and were less popular back then. However, in recent years, this fruit has become more popular (and available) with the recognition of its nutritional value and health benefits. Read more >>
