How to Seed a Pomegranate #tip

Monday, November 21, 2011 Posted by Aleksandra Nearing

Did you know it was Pomegranate season?  I look forward to it all year long!  We purchase them in bulk and eat probably one a day.  My husband and I always joke that whoever has to do the seeding needs to go pull out their ratty old sweatshirt.  It isn't pretty.  Juice squirts across the kitchen.  Heaven forbid a seed drops on the ground and you step on it - huge mess!

My mom taught me this tip a while ago.  Cut your pomegranate.  Fill a bowl with water.  Seed it in the water. The seeds sink.  The white pulp floats.  Let dry in a colander.  Enjoy!!

    Haha, I am just remembering to the time I seeded my first Pom. I think I did this water trick, but I still somehow got stains everywhere!

    Thank you, thank you. I just seeded one last week and thought it was so much work and wondered if there was an easier way! Yay! I am doing it this way from now on!

    Thank you! I just bought my first last night. It sat there in the fridge this morning - smirking at me. I'll get the last laugh! :)

    That's how I do it too! But before I discovered this, wow, what a mess it always ended up being. Still worth it though. ;)

    This is probably the ONLY food item that I will pay extra for the 'convenience' of having it seeded. Costco sells a tub of the arils and i succumb without fail.
