Today I saw a small container of pomegranate seeds at the store for almost $6. There were also fresh whole pomegranates selling for less than half of that price, so I started wondering, why would anyone want to pay 6 bucks for a cup of pomegranate seeds? Maybe because they are delicious, one of the most powerful antioxidant fruit, a natural anti-cancerous, an immune builder, a fruit known to lower cholesterol, blood pressure, and risk of heart disease, but most likely they pay that kind of money because seeding them could be pretty difficult and time-consuming. Never fear a whole pomegranate again! Today I am going to teach you “ The Fastest Way to Seed Pomegranate.”
How to pick a Pomegranate:
- Choose one that is heavy for its size, this means it is full of juice and ripe.
- The larger the fruit, the easier to seed.
- Pick one that is deep red with a smooth skin.
- Avoid the ones with bruises, cracks, flat or soft spots.
What you will need:
- A knife
- A bowl
- A wooden spoon or mallet
1) Fill the sink with cold water and add plenty of ice to it. (optional step)
4) Hold the pomegranate half facing down over a bowl
If you get any pomegranate juice in your clothes, treat immediately by rinsing under cold water, applying laundry detergent directly on the stain and soak on cold water for 15 to 30 minutes. If the stain is still there, apply hydrogen peroxide and scrub.
Pomegranate will last up to 3 months in the refrigerator, but once they are seeded consume within 3 to 5 days
