You Will Need
- A sharp knife
- A pomegranate
- A bowl of cool water
- A blender
- A sieve
Cut off the crown
Use a sharp knife to cut the crown off the top of the pomegranate.
Score the skin into quarters
Lightly score the skin of the pomegranate into quarters. Cut from the crown end to the stem end, being careful to cut through the skin, but not too deeply.
Break the sections apart
Place the pomegranate, crown side down, in a bowl of cool water for several minutes, and then break it apart. The seeds, or arils, will sink to the bottom of the bowl.
Eat the seeds or add them to another dish
Eat the seeds as they are, or add them to a salad, dessert, or any other dish for a sweet, tart treat.
Blend and strain
Blend the seeds until they are liquefied, and then strain the liquid through a sieve for fresh pomegranate juice.
