Author: Natasha of NatashasKitchen.com
Skill Level: Easy
Cost to Make: Varies by Season

Ingredients

  • Pomegranates

You wil need:

  • A bowl
  • A wooden spoon

Instructions

  1. Cut off the top (flower side) of the pomegranate, being careful not to go past the skin of the pomegranate.
  2. Wiggle off the top and set aside. Now slice down the sides of the pomegranate following the veins inside to divide the pomegranate into two halves, again being careful not to cut past the skin.
  3. Use your hands to loosten up each half of the pomegranate; pushing down the sides of each half while pushing up the center.
  4. Place the pomegranate half in your hand over a bowl (seeds-side-down) and hit the back firmly with a wooden spoon. The seeds pop right out! Repeat with second half.

Recipe Notes

Tip: To easily get rid of any white debris that might end up in your bowl, add cold water and it floats to the top, then drain the water off and enjoy. πŸ™‚

Have you tried this method? Do you do something different? Maybe you’re a picker and you like sitting over it for 30 minutes (I totally do that when I’m watching a show – except I have to make sure I’m wearing my ugly shirt just in case ofΒ splatter ;)).

      I have never heard anything bad about eating pomegranate seeds while pregnant. I would suggest eating it in moderation if you enjoy them. Too much of anything is not good whether you’re pregnant or not. πŸ™‚ Have you done any research online about it? I’ve just never heard anything bad about pomegranate seeds in pregnancy. They are rich in antioxidants which I imagine is good for anyone. πŸ™‚ what are you concerned about with them? Reply

    I take the entire pomegranate cut it in fourths and put it in a bowl woth cold water. With my hands i pop out the seeds and they dont get mushy under the water, they pop right out. All the other stuff float to the top and the seeds fall to the bottom. πŸ™‚ I love your recipes Natasha!!! Reply

    Hi natasha,
    I like to cut it at the natural soft spots and then i can quickly seed the pomegranate bunches without any splatters by hand.
    I have seen pro chefs and my dad seed then in a bowl of water to prevent splashes and quickly release the seeds.
    After I seed them, i press them in a potato ricer for pure crisp juice, i bought the potato ricer just for that ;))im a fan.
    In israeli studies, it had been proven an effective remedy for controlling high blood pressure, just 2 oz squeezed juice a day, i recommend to everyone. Reply
