Do you ever buy fresh pomegranates and pop out all the ruby-colored seeds inside to use for salads or snacks? The rind that's left is something you shouldn't automatically toss into the compost bin, because it turns out you can make a healthy pomegranate tea with the peel! Bring water to a boil in a small pot and turn off the heat, then steep the peel in the water for at least 30 minutes to get the maximum flavor and benefits. Since pomegranates are high in antioxidants, this is a healthy tea that helps the body detoxify. You can add a little natural sweetener, like honey to the tea, too.
