The most commonly asked question in our produce department every winter is “how do you remove the seeds from a pomegranate?”. While it may look intimidating, it is quite easy.
Cut ends off a large pomegranate. With a sharp paring knife, cut off the top about one inch below the crown.
Once the top has been removed, four to siz sections of the pomegranate divided by white membrane will be visible. With the knife’s point, score the skin along each section.
Using both hands, carefully pull the pomegranate apart in a bowl of water, breaking it into smaller sections.
Under water, loosen the arils and allow them to sink to the bottom of the bowl; the membrane will float to the top.
Use a spoon to scoop out the pieces of white membrane that have floated to the top of the water. Strain.
