Tips for this Pomegranate Juice Recipe.
- Buy fresh pomegranate; you could probably use frozen pomegranate seeds to make this recipe, but I have never tried it, so I don’t know if you will get the same result. To make this pomegranate juice recipe, I always buy fresh and big pomegranates.
- Use very ripe pomegranates: relatively, use ripe pomegranates, and by that, I mean the deep red colored pomegranate seeds. 2020 was the year I wanted to visit a pomegranate orchard; guess what? It didn’t happen because of COVID restrictions. Nevertheless, I am grateful that there are still abundant pomegranates to buy in stores from my local grocery.
- For best result, use this pomegranate juice fresh after making it and before its oxides. I do not recommend saving pomegranate juice in the fridge for days; drink it all within the first day!
