Make your own pomegranate juice
Freshly picked pomegranates are harvested in Cyprus from October onwards. We have three established trees and have also planted a seedless variety which will hopefully produce a few fruits this year.
Pomegranates can be stored for about 2 weeks or for up to 2 months in a fridge. If the seeds are removed from the fruit these can be frozen for up to a year. An excellent method of storing pomegranates is to make juice which is both delicious and because it is high in anti-oxidants benefits your health. Simply wash your crop, chop into quarters and using a press squeeze out the juice. The juice can be enjoyed within 2-3 days if kept in a fridge or frozen for later consumption.
