Believe it or not, this weekend we purchased our first pomegranate. I ran across them at the grocery store and instantly wanted one…I’m pretty familiar with the pomegranate martini if you know what I mean. We brought it home, stared at its odd shape for a bit, and ended up Googling how to tend to this yummy fruit. I thought that maybe I wasn’t the only smartie who didn’t know how to get the seeds out of a pomegranate so….here you go:
Cut about 1/4 inch of a slice off the end.
Score around the fruit several times.
Submerge the fruit in a large bowl of water for 5-10 minutes.
Break apart the fruit under the water to prevent juice spraying and staining!
The seeds will start to sink to the bottom of the bowl.
Scoop out the excess pith and use a strainer to separate the seeds from the water.
The seeds are delicious! It’s like a burst of fruity flavor in your mouth. And so good for you too! I’ve heard they are really good in salads and I’m curious how else others use them. Fruit salads? Smoothies? Yum!
