How To De-seed A Pomegranate {The Best Way: EASILY!}


I've decided the decision to if I should do a food how to post, should be decided on someones reaction when I show them how to do something. The moment I surprise my friends, or better yet, Alex with a simple tip or trick, well then, I know I should do a post on it. Like always, some you may know, but many you may not!

That being said---- if you've always loved pomegranate, but HATED picking out the seeds--- well, then, your welcome for saving years of your life.

you'll need: 
a sharp knife, a medium to large bowl, a large spoon--- I like to use the wooden variety ;)

how to:
1. place pomegranate sitting with the stem up and slice in half.
2. with a bowl underneath, take one half of pomegranate and turn over so skin is up and seeds are down.
3. grab your wooden spoon and wack the crap out of it.
4. watch all the juicy seeds splatter into the bowl, very easily, and celebrate.
5. send cards or gifts as a thank you.

looking for a good and easy recipe for your seeds? Try THIS one :)

Hooray!

  5. This is great! I struggled with this for quite some time while attempting to scoop out pomegranate seeds to put in our champagne with my sister (highly recommended usage of pom. seeds by the way ; )). Thanks!

  6. Soaking the half in water and any left over in the fruit, just wack it with a spoon. ;)
