Quick Tip: The Easiest Way To Seed A Pomegranate

pomegranate-seeds1As you may have figured from my post earlier this week– I am kind of a major super-fan of the mighty pomegranate.  Not only are they a nutritional powerhouse, but they are simply one the tastiest fruits I have ever eaten.  Unfortunately, pomegranates are also one of the most annoying fruits to eat, as they are a)  tedious to pick through, and b) so juicy that the red stuff often stains my clothing, making me very sad :(

Well, if you find that you are in the same dilemma, let me show you the best way I have found to seed the fruit in about a minute, without getting any stains, anywhere! Yes, the pomegranate Gods have answered my prayers :)

You’re welcome.

STEP 1: Fill a large bowl with water and cut your fruit in half. Put fruit into bowl, which is in your sink (hopefully not a white sink!)

STEP #2. Keep the fruit (at all times) under water to prevent spraying. Start ripping apart the fruit and separating the seeds, which will fall the bottom of the bowl.

STEP #3. Once you have taken apart the whole fruit (this should not take very long at all, and you will get better at it), let all the white matter float up to the top, seeds to the bottom.

STEP #4. Slowly drain the water with your hands.
