pomegranate 101

One of my favorite Holiday time snacks!!

Eating a pomegranate can be a messy task. The juice can stain your clothes and even your countertops!

The seeds of the pomegranate fruit are sweet, juicy and bursting with flavor. Sprinkled in salads, in fruit salads, over ice cream and sorbet, the seeds add an interesting addition to any dish. The seeds are tasty eaten by themselves!

Before you go biting into this delicious fruit, read these step by step instructions on how to de-seed a pomegranite. It will leave you stain free and with lots of seeds to eat!

Cut off the crown...
Slice the rind in several places...Soak the pomegranate in cold water, upside down for 5-10 minutes...
Break apart the rind of the pomegranate and remove seeds from membrane. The seeds will sink to the bottom of the bowl.
Remove rind and membranes from bowl...
Drain seeds with a collander. Pat dry with cloth or paper towel. Eat immediately or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two days. Enjoy!!
