How-To Seed A Pomegranate (Video)

YouTube Preview Image

A Pomegranate is an amazing and delicious fruit that often gets overlooked simply because people don’t know how to get the seeds out!  SO I decided it was about time to share my favorite way to seed (or de-seed) a pomegranate.

It takes a little bit of effort but I promise you the reward is well worth the ‘work’.

This is also a great job to have your children do because it’s safe (no knives), it’s fun, and depending on how old your kiddies are, it can take a relatively long time (and we all know how valuable a lengthy-new activity that holds a toddlers attention can be when it comes to maintaing Mommies sanity;)).

Oh… and here are a few of my favorite ways to incorporate these delicious little jewels into my kitchen:

    I just had a fresh pomegranate for the first time last month. Is there a way to remove the seeds or pits from the smaller pieces? I found that I couldn’t eat them because the seeds killed my teeth. Any ideas? I also have a new appreciate of the cost of pomegranate juice.

    thanks. here’s a quicker way using a heavy spoon and bowl. Your way looks cleaner and reduced clean up time though. best.
