How To Seed A Pomegranate

Tuesday, December 6, 2011

Sweets do you like pomegranates? Balazs and I love them with salads and goat cheese but to be honest I rarely buy them as they prove to be such pain to seed. So the other day I got super excited when I spotted Stephanie's cool trick to smooth and easy pomegranate goodness. She simply cuts it into quarters and with a use of a wooden spoon she whacks the skin of the flipped pomegranate till the seeds start spilling out. I’ve tried it last night on a ripe pomegranate and it worked beautifully. (Here is the full how to). xo

P.S: How to make white chocolate in 5 minutes and this nifty garlic peeling trick.
P.P.S: How to roast garlic. Yum!

Does that seriously work?? I was just asking this question the other day! Love eating it, dislike peeling it. Thanks for the post and tips!

Smita, it really does. The tirck is that the pomegranate should be quite ripe.

I love pomegranate on salads - though I'm lazy & sometimes buy a bag of seeds!

Alexa said...

Oh this is genius. Totally going to give this a shot. And they are delish with goat cheese!!!!

I need to give this a try next time I eat a pomegranate!! I usually use the "peel it underwater" method, which takes forever and still manages to be kind of messy. (Or maybe I'm just really bad at it??)

Stephanie, the "peel it underwater" method it's really messy for me! Uff..

Diana Mieczan said...

That's Not My Age, oh you are a luckly girl! We don't have bags of pomegranate seeds here. You can just get the fruit itself.

Does that seriously work? I love pomegranates but they're always so much work I tend to pass them by. I will definitely try this soon.

ah clever! i tend to cut them up and laboriously pick the seeds out, time consuming yes, but i see it as part of the fun!

I'll have to try that tomorrow! I usually cut it into halves and pop them out in a bowl of water. Everything softens underwater making the seeds come out easier, and the mess floats to the top leaving the seeds at the bottom.

We juice them in our citrus press. Half them and plop them in as if it were an orange... So yummy. These grow really well in our desert environment.
