How to De-seed Pomegranate and Pomegranate Apple Juice

How to De-seed Pomegranate. Easy, Mess free, No Stain, the quick way.

De-seeding Pomegranate is usually a messy affair for everyone. But it need not be. I found that this method is very easy, less messy and quick when compared to all other methods. The seeds don’t get crushed like in some methods and there aren’t stains and splashes all over the kitchen. The Pomegranate seeds are known as arils. Here is how to de-seed Pomegranate.

Wash the Pomegranate and dry them. Place it on a chopping board and cut about half an inch from the top and the bottom of the Pomegranate.


Score the Pomegranate around the midline. Cut it deep enough to get into the skin. But do not go so deep that you pierce through the seeds inside. Score it 5-7 times around depending on the size of the Pomegranate. Pull apart the Pomegranate. Use your thumbs to open. It will break open into 4-5 pieces easily.


Use your fingers to get the seeds from the pomegranate shell and the membranes. If you wish, you can do this over a bowl of water where the Pomegranate seeds will sink to the bottom and the membranes will float to the top. I just do it on top of the bowl and remove the membranes as I go about it.


Now for Pomegranate Apple juice, take 3 de-seeded Pomegranates and two roughly chopped Apples. Feed them in the juicer to extract the juice. Stir the juice once. Pour in glasses and serve.
Drink right away.

  1. Ma’am can you please suggest one single good slow juicer that can juice all types of fruits and vegetables….with minimal heat, maximum juice and dry waste

    Dear Suguna
    I’ve been cooking for forty years and thought I knew everything about cooking and baking.. Well you certainly taught me!!
    Every recipe of yours that I’ve tried out is a roaring success so thank you and keep going.. I just stumbled on your millet recipes and am planning to try them out one by one .
    As to the pomegranate I’ve found the juice kadai karan technique works quickly
    Cut pomo into two then hold one half cut side facing palm and tap with dosai karandi on the skin side. The pearls just fall down on plate below…saw same technique being used by a contestantcontestant in Masterchef Asia too
    Anyway cheers ! And god bless

    1. Thank you so much Akila mam. Your comment really means a lot to me. I know that process of removing the seeds that way by tapping. But the only problem why I dont like that method is that the juices of the pomegranate splatter and I dont like that. Thats the reason why I prefer this method over that. Thank you for writing in. Happy Cooking.

  3. Hi Kannamma,
    my little one and I drank some pomegranate “smoothie” – basically put it in a blender and drank it all up – but our mouth was very sore the next day… both of us 🙁 was it the seeds? have you experienced this?


    1. Hi Devi,
      This is really new to me. I have experienced this with pineapples but never with pomegranate.
      Are you sure that the pomegranates gave you sore throat?
      I will try to find it out.
