The pomegranate’s leathery red skin hides a treasure trove of sweet-tart, juicy arils (as the edible seeds are called). Among the first cultivated fruits, pomegranates do not ripen once they’ve been picked. The sweetest, juiciest fruits should have smooth, unbroken skin and feel heavy for their size. Once you’ve liberated them from the skin and pith, pomegranate seeds are delicious additions to both sweet and savory dishes. Sprinkle them in Greek yogurt or atop a spinach salad. Try them on ice cream or hot cereal, or garnish a platter of roast pork with the little red jewels.
