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.
