It’s pomegranate season! Hooray! Pomegranates are one of my favourite fruits – packed with anti-oxidants, tastes amazing and is generally just a good-lookin’ fruit. Now the thing with pomegranates, they are a bit tricky to open up, so here’s a quick how-to on how to get the seeds out of the pomegranates:
- Cut the top portion off of the pomegranate until some seeds are exposed
- Score the pomegranate into six different sections
- Break into pieces and remove the husk/peel and start picking out the seeds.
- Place seeds into a cold bowl of water – the husk/white shell stuff will float to the stop and the seeds will sink to the bottom.
- Skim the top of the water and remove the “junk” – the seeds may need to be gently stirred to lift off more “junk”
- Drain the water and enjoy! I occasionally will put the pomegranate seeds into a container, put them in the fridge & take them to work for a refreshing snack!
