How To Remove Pomegranate Seeds Easily To Eat Pomegranate
Things You Need – Pomegranate, a knife and a bowl of water
Instructions To Remove pomegranate Seeds Easily From The Fruit
Wash the pomegranate and while holding the pomegranate close over the bowl of water, cut through the skin of the pomegranate vertically using a knife.
You can make about three to four cuts over the skin.
The cuts should be thick enough to go through the skin of the pomegranate but try not to cut through the seeds inside (you may also cut off the top of the fruit if you wish, to make things more easier).
The reason why I told to hold the pomegranate closer to the bowl of water is because, in case you cut through the seeds, mostly the pomegranate juice will splash into the water in the bowl only, which will help prevent any possible stain from the seeds.
Now that you have cut through the skin, immerse the fruit in the bowl of water and using your hands, open the fruit through the cuts that you have made vertically.
The fruit will open in sections along the cut skin, splashing some juice and many seeds into the water.
As we are holding the fruit inside the bowl of water, there won’t be any mess from this.
Using your hands, press on the outer side of the cut sections of the fruit, to force out all seeds from the white membrane.
This way most of the seeds will fall into the water.
You can easily separate any remaining seeds with your hands, while still holding the fruit inside the water.
Do the same with all cut sections of the fruit, and now you have got all the pomegranate seeds along with some white membranes inside the bowl of water.
Now you can remove the skin and the white membranes that float on the top of the water easily.
The seeds will be immersed in the water while the white membranes tend to float, so they are easy to remove.
Just mix the seeds gently with your hands to remove any more white membranes sticking to the seeds.
Discard the water in the bowl and lightly rinse the seeds in fresh water, and now the fresh pomegranate seeds are ready to be enjoyed!
In fact, you can cut the fruit horizontally (and open in two halves inside the bowl of water) and then follow the method to separate the seeds, if that is more easy for you.
Either you cut vertically or you cut through the half horizontally, the idea is to make the cut through the skin and then open the fruit inside the bowl of the water to separate the seeds from the membrane.
