The Safe Way to Seed a Pomegranate!

Do you love pomegranates but hate seeding the fruit? I have a fool proof method for getting those amazing pink seeds out of the shell with out ruining your shirt. 

Step #1 - make a shallow cut down half of the fruit.
Step #2 - get a large bowl, big enough for you to immerse both hands, then fill with water.
Step #3 - place the fruit in the water and pull the sides apart. Slowly pull at each bunch of seeds under water, they will come off the peel and sink to the bottom. The peel is light and will float in the water.
Step #4 - hand scoop the peelings off the top of the water and drain the seeds.

I hope this helps you enjoy one of my favorite fall fruits!


  1. What a fantastic idea! I love pomegranates... I'm going to have to try your method of seeding them! Thanks!

  2. Yum! One of my favorites. I always let my fabulous hubby cut open the pomegranates, because I am horrible at it. I will have to try this!
