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.
I can’t remember the instructions I read years ago but I vowed never to deseed a pomegranate again! This method was easy, good description & good pictures, thanks!!!
It was detailed and with the pics I was so happy to learn how to de-seed. I had a tree in my backyard, it produces dozens and dozens of fruit, I never care to eaten because I knew the stains we difficult to remove from my counter top. Your instructions were simply to follow. THANK YOU SO MUCH. I just finished eating one, it was delicious * have
Fabulous … I have a few here to test it out. I “love” the juice blended. No sugar thank you — love the freshness. I have been getting 1 to 1 cup of juice this year!
Thank you for sharing this instructive knowledge about my favorite fruit! BELLA! Sheila
I’m definitely going to try this fruit come fall
Well articulated and on point. No messy stains and all the juice is extracted.
I followed a slightly different method and had juice in places I did not want. Next time, I try your method. How much should be eaten to be beneficial? My pomegranate was huge! That’s a lot for eating immediately. I will freeze some of them, but I wasn’t sure what a “serving size” is considered to be healthy.
I don’t mind eating the whole seed, but the last taste and texture is far from satisfying as the juice is.
Hi Marcia, I don’t really steer by serving sizes so don’t know what to tell you. I can usually eat about 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup of pomegranate seeds as a snack, or a quarter to a third of a large pomegranate.
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!
This workes great! I had a hard time getting the seeds out because it was my first time we seeding it on my own. But the cutting technique was perfect thanks!
thanks for letting me know how to buy them according to their ripeness ! Didn’t know that
Hi Chris, I think the best pomegranates you’ll find are at your local farmers market. Typically supermarkets sell pretty fruit, which in this case isn’t necessarily the best. I always look for pomegranates where the seems are about to burst.
just what I needed to know , thanks
Excellent instructions! My first attempt at cleaning a pomegranate.
Great instruction. Thank you so much.
BRILLIANT, had not even considered water. TYVM
I cut in halves or thirds, turn them over and hit with a wooden spoon into a bowl. Seeds fall out–some membrane…but it’s good for you. To make juice I put through a masticating juicer. Don’t need sugar. You can even dehydrate and powder the seeds which are full of protein.
