I posted this tutorial two years ago and as I de-seeded my first pom of the season I thought it would be a good idea to share it again seeing how this technique saved my life…
‘Tis the season for delicious Pomegranates! If you are anything like me the idea of this Sweet Cold treat is mouthwatering but the effort it takes to enjoy them is daunting and not worth the hassle! And the mess! YIKES!!That was until a few years ago when I learned how to PROPERLY De-seed these tantalizing little gems! Once I learned this easy trick Pomegranate Season put a new spring in my step!
Here’s the”How To” low down on how to prepare a Pomegranate for Proper Consumption!
(I properly consume them by the fist full!)
First you’ll make your one and only cut into the fruit. Cut the top off of your Pomegranate just barely cutting into and exposing the red fruit.
Now you’ll start to pull apart the fruit while you hold it under water. This keeps it from spitting red juice that stains like crazy and causes you to curse in your mind! It also makes it easy to expose the gems and brush them off of their membrane.
You’ll find that the seeds sink to the bottom of the bowl and the pieces of white membrane float to the top! This makes it super easy to scoop the white pieces out leaving behind just the fruit! Clever huh!
And there you have it! In just a minute or two you will have de-seeded an entire Pomegranate!
And to keep them fresh and easy to enjoy simply drain the seeds and spreed them onto a plate lined with a few sheets of paper towel.Dry them and keep them in an air tight Tupperware container in the Refrigerator.
They will last for over a week if stored correctly but to be honest with you you’ll most likely eat them way before the week is up!!
