I took a trip to Wegmans tonight to pick up some groceries and noticed pomegranates must be in season, because there are plenty – and at 2 for $5, I figured I’d pick a couple up. Here’s the hitch, seeding a pomegranate is THE most time consuming thing – if you’ve ever tried, you know what I mean. The yellow skin sticks to all the seeds- and sometimes it can literally take 25 minutes to seed a pomegranate and you’re left wondering if it was really worth the hastle. Well, don’t fear I am going to change your world- or at least save you some time seeding pomegranates.
Step 1: Fill a large bowl with water
Step 2: Cut pomegranate in 4 sections
Step 3: Submerge one section on fruit in water, and start peeling the seeds out of the casing. The seeds will sink and the yellow skin will float.
Step 4: Repeat
Step 5: Strain with your hands the yellow skin out of the water
Step 6: Strain seeds and store
Total time: 10 minutes max
PROBLEM SOLVED! Now, we can all finally eat some pomegranates and all the nutritional benefits they hold!
