Easy Pomegranate Wine

You will need:

1 Bottle 750ml Chardonnay

1 Pomegranate Gadget (see below) higly recommended - I have given mine much use

3 Fresh Pomegranates

I like the Angeline Chardonnay This is an award winning California Chardonnay wine. It has a characteristic tropical fruit and oak flavors.

The easiest way to seed these is to use a gadget such as this one.  I use it and it gets most every seed out of there.  Watch this Youtube video on how to use it.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_d9_cA-aja4

Simple - deseed your three pomegranates and place into a glass pitcher with a top.  I like the 2 liter from "The Delicious Revolution".  It's perfect for this purpose.

Pour your bottle of chardonnay over the seeds and refrigerate covered for three weeks.  Just in time for Thanksgiving!

Beautiful and delicious.  If you want to make more, just use these proportions with a larger glass container.

This wows my dinner guests everytime and has all of the incredible health promoting properties of Pomegranates.

The pomegranate, also known as the seeded apple, is a powerful fruit and is loaded with health benefits. It is deliciously sweet, and contains about 600 juicy seeds per fruit. Pomegranate is very low in calories, high in fiber, and packed with disease fighting antioxidants, making it an ideal choice for our diets.
Let’s take a look at the healing properties of the seeds:

Great Hormone Balancer
Ancient secret for hormonal balance
Mankind has revered the magical, mystical pomegranate since the dawn of recorded history. Ancient Greeks, Romans, and the peoples of China, India, and the Middle East found its properties to be life-giving and invigorating.

Furthermore, the pomegranate fruit has been revered for thousands of years in all the world’s major religions as The Fruit of Life, springing from The Garden of Paradise. As the traditional symbol of fertility and rebirth, it was also thought to bestow invincibility upon the person who enjoyed its glittering sweet tartness. It is a fruit of legend and power – a sacred symbol of human civilisation.
This fruit, known as ‘the jewel of winter’, was used for centuries in Middle Eastern folk medicine to treat many symptoms.

Modern science has now shown that pomegranates contain a rich and diverse range of beneficial and protective substances, including phytoestrogens, polyphenols, elligatannins, and anthocyanins. These compounds are all powerful antioxidants.

Aid with weight loss:

Pomegranate seeds are very low in calories, and high in fiber, making them a great ally when it comes to losing weight and keeping a flat tummy. The fiber helps make you feel full faster, and the low calories help keep us from packing on the pounds. Foods that are rich in fiber are even known to help prevent chronic diseases. For every 100 g serving, pomegranate seeds provide only 83 calories and 4 g of dietary fiber. The U.S. Department of Agriculture Dietary Guidelines for Americans states that 2 cups of fruit and 2 ½ cups of veggies are crucial for great health. A 100 g serving of pomegranate seeds is about ¾ cup.

A good source of vitamin C:

Vitamin C is one of the most effective nutrients on the planet. Pomegranate seeds are very high in vitamin C. The benefits of vitamin C may include protection against immune system deficiencies, cardiovascular disease, prenatal health problems, eye disease, and even skin wrinkling. Including pomegranate seeds in our diets is a sweet way to get our daily vitamin C requirements. 100 g of pomegranate seeds provides 10.2mg of vitamin C, which is 17 percent of our daily requirement.

Cancer prevention and heart health:

Similar to other fruits, pomegranate seeds are an excellent source of phytochemicals, which are substances found in plants that fight disease. Pomegranate seeds contain a group of phytochemicals called polyphenols. Quercetin, anthocyanins, and tannins are three of the polyphenols in pomegranate seeds that are known for their ability to promote heart health and possibly even prevent cancer. Polyphenols kill cancer cells, prevent the growth of tumors, and promote healthy cells. Pomegranate seeds are also known to reduce LDL cholesterol, which helps maintain a healthy heart.
