So pomegranates. They’re delish! But when I didn’t know how to seed one, I found them a huge pain and would end up spending 4 times the price of a whole pomegranate just to buy a 1/2 cup of the pre-seeded ones. I’ve got a feeling some of you are guilty of the same thing so I’m going to share this super simple how to seed a pomegranate the easy way tutorial with you today! I even have a video for you – woahhhhhh. Okay let’s get this party started.

STEP 2: Fill a bowl with cool water. Take one pomegranate wedge, place it in the water, and gently use your thumbs to break apart the flesh and push the pomegranate seeds out and into the water. (Watch the video at the end of this post to see exactly how I do it!)

This is the cool part! The fleshy membranes float to the top of the water and the juicy seeds will sink to the bottom. It’s like magic.

Nice tutorial that was much needed for me.

Great tip. I cut mine just through the skin then twist it apart. Holding a half in one hand over a bowl I whack it with a big wooden spoon. The seeds fall out into the bowl. It is so nice having a bunch of pomegranate seed without having to pay so much money. The whacking gets some aggression out too 🙂

    Great idea!!
