How to Eat a Pomegranate

Written by Westborn Market. Posted in Frontpage Blog, Fruit, Produce, Recipes

Everybody is loving pomegranates these days, and for good reason! They have a delicious sweet and mildly sour flavor and can be used for so many things. Not to mention, pomegranates are loaded with healthy antioxidants. A compound, found only in pomegranates, called punicalagin, is shown to benefit the heart and blood vessels. It not only lowers cholesterol, but also helps to lower blood pressure. Regardless of all these wonderful benefits, a lot of folks are clueless when it comes to how to seed and eat a pomegranate. You’re not alone, it’s kinda tricky… so, that’s why we are here to help! We’ve mapped out the exact steps to take in order to properly seed and eat a pomegranate (and without a big, juicy mess!)

All things fresh, all things local

Whenever possible Westborn buys it’s fruits and vegetables from local, Michigan farmers. Obviously the weather doesn’t permit this year round, but that’s why we get so excited when the weather is right in the spring and the Michigan crops start rolling into the market. This year is no exception. Not only does buying Michigan help the local economy, but it’s better for the environment and it gives you are fresher, better tasting and more nutritious product.

When the Michigan produce is in our stores, you can also be confident that we have hand-picked every case of product that hits our floor. We don’t buy local just to say we do it. We buy local because we know the best farmers who have the highest quality Michigan products and that’s all that we buy.

Michigan Cherries are Here!

Michigan Cherries are Back!

Why are Michigan cherries better than the others?

We are one of the only markets in town with perfectly ripe, fresh picked cherries that are delivered to our stores within hours of being harvested. Unlike other cherries that are picked before they are fully ripe, our tree-ripened cherries are firmer, darker and more flavorful than anything you can buy at a regular market.
