It’s the pomegranate season and I’m so excited! It’s one of the super fruit that is packed with vitamins and antioxidant. You can eat it straight, add it on salad for a crunchy pop, or turn it into juice and make a smoothie. I’ve always love pomegranate but it is not the most easy fruit to eat. If you’ve tried it before, you know what I mean. It has a rather hard shell to start with, after cutting it up, the seeds (the edible parts) are all surrounded by a white and bitter membrane! So, I’m going to show you how to take those little jewels out of the shell, the easy way.
1) Wash and pat dry the shell of the fruit. With a sharp knife, cut the pomegranate in half.
2) Hold the pomegranate cut side down over a large mixing bowl. With the flat side of a meat tenderizer, gently tap on the shell of the pomegranate.
3) After a minute, the seeds will be all out from the shell!
Super easy, isn’t it? I hope you like this method and will give it a try soon. Do you have another easy way to remove the seeds as well? Or a recipe using the pomegranate? I would love to hear from you.
