REPLACE YOUR TRADITIONAL SUGAR-LOADED CRANBERRY RELISH with an antioxidant, superfood- rich Pomegranate-Mint Relish. With ZERO added sugar or sweeteners, you can now enjoy that extra piece of pumpkin pie guilt free. Fret no more about removing the seeds from your pomegranate. If you don’t have child labor at home or the time to de-seed your pomegranates, most grocery stores now offer containers of pomegranate seeds.

SWEET, SWEET, SWEET VINAIGRETTE WITH ZERO REFINED SUGAR. That’s right, no sugar, no honey, no agave, nothing other than the sweetness from fruit! This recipe uses both types of persimmons: Hachiya and Fuyu. The Hachiya persimmons are elongated and oval-shaped and must be eaten when very ripe with a soft, jelly-like flesh. The Fuyu are flat-bottomed and more squat-shaped and may be enjoyed crisp and firm like an apple.
