How To Seed and Skin a Pomegranate

This is fast and easy to harvest a fall of pomegranate seeds.
Lukewarm water bath. Place big bowl inside the sink.

Slice Pom in half, under water.

Turn flesh inside out and pop seeds out.

Anything that floats, gets pushed over the edge,
and discarded into the waiting sink below.

Transfer into colander and let drain. Voila!

You so rock, I have one waiting to be devoured, but it's such an ordeal to eat it! This helps bunches ;)

Teri!!! Thank you so much!! I've been eating these for two weeks now and I've been covered with pom juice from head to toe trying to take the seeds out!! LOl! Your technique is perfect!!

Holy Moly!!! I have avoided these dang things for years because of my memories of trying to pick out each seed and eat it!


You Are Brilliant!


Great tip! Pomegranate is the best they look great in the kitchen bowl as well ;)


Oh, good!
Yep, no artistic splashing here, just clean and clear seeds of genius-creativity-inducement.

I just it 'em by the spoonful.

P.S. I know the photo coloring is odd and the angles awkward, and "No": those are not my man hands but, they do belong to "That Guy" who decided to be of service, and he too found out how easy to do something new.

Be well to all.

Genius dear Teri... I love 'em so too. I have the best childhood memories of my sis and sitting in front of the television with our fingers red from eating pomegranates. Will have to try this new method soon!

Manon Doyle said...

Teri.... thanks for your comment today!

I'm all about chakras! I went to have them balanced this past Spring by a woman who has these amazing Tibetan bowls and she does it through sound waves...... it was absolutely incredible... I need to go back!

BTW.... I was obsessed with cherries and now I can't get enough pomegranate!
