Anor suvi (Pomegranate juice)
In our folk medicine, juice of pomegranate is used to cure anemia, weakness, high blood pressure, diarrhea and dental problems. It is well known that pomegranate juice also prevents breast, lung and prostate cancer. It is very useful for pregnant and breastfeeding women. In Uzbekistan different beverages are made from pomegranate juice. "Anor sharbati", "Anor shinnisi" are famous of them all.
When it is given to children, it's better to mix it with some water.
We have special technique to squeeze out juice from pomegranate. You have to mash the whole fruit with your fingers, just be careful not to crack the skin. When pomegranate is very soft and lost it's shape, pinch it with knife and just squeeze out the juice. If you want you can mix some water.
Enjoy your natural and useful juice.
