Don’t be intimidated—our quick tutorial shows you how to get the most seeds from your pomegranate in four easy steps.
Step 1: Using a sharp knife, cut around the midsection of the pomegranate. Be sure to pierce through the skin without cutting into the seeds.
Step 2: Gently twist to separate the two halves.
Step 3: Hold one half over a large bowl and tap with a wooden spoon to release the seeds. Repeat with the other half.
Step 4: Remove any bitter, white pith that may have fallen into the bowl.
Store seeds in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to five days, and enjoy!
