Our eCookbook sponsor, Youngstown Fresh Pomegranate Arils, shares their passion for pomegranate this holiday season; you may have seen this red, apple-like fruit in your local grocery store around this time of year. Pomegranate arils are the delicious edible seeds inside, and they're jam-packed with antioxidants. Wait'll you see the amazing recipes the Mr. Food Test Kitchen developed that feature these ruby red gems! Pomegranate arils are just the thing to give your Christmas menu that seasonal color.
