Here's One for Ethan


How to Seed a Pomegranate
A simple, step-by-step guide

Pomegranate juice stains, so be sure to put on an apron and protect your countertop before working with the fruit.

1. Cut off the stem end of the pomegranate.

2. Score the skin in several places.

3. Working over a large bowl filled halfway with cold water, use your fingers to pull apart the pomegranate.

4. Pry away the seeds from the peel and the membrane. The seeds will sink to the bottom of the bowl; the pieces of membrane will float on top.

5. When you are finished, use a slotted spoon or a small sieve to scoop up the pieces of membrane.

6. Drain the seeds in a sieve or a colander and pat dry with a paper towel. Eat the seeds out of hand or use them in drinks, jellies, or salads.

Papa Joe used to eat them, too! Seems like a lot of work for just a little fruit.

I'm glad you found this. Ethan is needing a new way to eat them.
