  • Pomegranates

You wil need:

  • A bowl
  • A wooden spoon


  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. :)
