Thank you for the very good instructions,takes time and patience, WELL Worth It
I found a vender in Turkey selling pomegranates seeds and juice. The method was similar to yours, but very quick and easy and I’ve used it ever since. He sliced off a small portion of the bottom (stem end) exposing the seeds and partitions, then he used a knife to cut in the direction of each partition up to the blossom end. After spreading the fruit into sections, but still attached near the blossom end, he turned the fruit over a bowl and used the back of a spoon to strike the section’s hard outer surface to dislodge the seeds. The seeds fall quickly and cleanly from the fruit in less than a minute when you become proficient. The syrup is delicious!

Thanks for sharing, Gary!
I was just seeing how to eat and I’ll probably use the seeds inside and plant some more trees. Thanks for the tips.
Easiest way I’ve ever done it
Great advice – thank you
Yes, very educative. Can i eat it up without cutting just the way i will do to an apple?
You can try, but I don’t think it would be very pleasant at all.
Yes, helpful. I had been following this method. But normally divided the pomegranate as per my convenience without regard to the ridges on the outer side. Thanks for the good idea to look for the gentle ridges.
It was awesome de-seeding them using your guide.
Yes there good . .
Thanks I had no idea ! I’m now diabetic 2 and had a lovely salad in a restaurant recently with these in so I wanted to copy it and will freeze the rest of them
Tks. Really helped me to harvest and eat.
I knew the process but I forgot this but it help me to remember this process again. So thank u
First time ever for me – it worked like a charme and tasted wonderful – thank you my pomegranate was in a very ripe state and wonderful sweet
“Takes FOREVER to separate arils from skin! Been doing it this way for years and it’s a pain! Hitting with wooden spoon is better. Who cares if arils are bruised!? Your going to chew them up!”
I do the same with a wood spoon but first I score through the skin at the equator. Spank it all over with the wood spoon. Then twist the 2 halves like opening the lid of a jar. Pop open over a bowl and the arils drop out.
I’m happy you like “spanking them” do it your way, I’ve doing it her way and it works just fine!
Nice I liked the way you did itHope I can do it right
I just love this. It’s co clean, simple easy. Someone figured it out and we all get to benefit Z. Works great. This makes me feel happy. Thanks for sharing this
First time I did one, I scraped seeds out w/a spoon. It splashed my shirt all over. I laughed & should of figured that would happen. All that meaning- Your instructions were excellent.
I just discovered delicious pomegranates that my mom loved from mega years ago.Your method to de-seed is great. It seems to incorporate the important parts of ones I’ve seen on youtube. This way I don’t have to pause and figure it out or print screen it to compensate for a rusty memory. Oh well, there’ll be a WD40 for human brains soon, right?
LOL, I wish! My brain, like my knees, gets creakier every day.
Just roll it around your cutting board to crush all the seeds for a couple of minutes, pressing firmly. Then poke a hole and squeeze the pomegranate as the juice pours into your mouth.
