Re: Pomegranate Juice / grantapfel Juice

Just a pity that pomegranates are so expensive in Switzerland.

I always love to drink it when fresh when we are in Turkey.

Re: Pomegranate Juice / grantapfel Juice

All I can say is, it's my number 1 favourite fruit. I eat 4 per week or so, spending 10 minutes sitting and separating the seeds from the pith.

It is? Try:

jug of ice, sparkling water, one third of pomegranate juice, two sliced limes, huge bunch of mint. You can add vodka in the glass after pouring. My favourite summertime drink.

Re: Pomegranate Juice / grantapfel Juice

I love pomegranates and buy them at a Turkish shop near by - it's much cheaper there than at Migros etc.

Re: Pomegranate Juice / grantapfel Juice

I would also like to know where you can get 100% pomegranate juice.
Currently I am drinking pomegranate juice made by Biotta, which has white tea and various other things in it. So I'm not too sure of its health benefits.

Re: Pomegranate Juice / grantapfel Juice

I make my own Pomegranate juice. Just cut the fruit into two take away the peel (if you're patient separate the fruit individually) . Take a blender, add little water, a pinch of salt , a pinch of oregano leaves.Blend them for 1 minute. Take a strainer and separate the seeds and the juice. Add sugar and its done.
