Pomegranates are in season now & the arils (the seeds) are the edible part of this delicious fruit! We want to share 2 simple ways that you an open a pomegranate (without making a mess)!
How to Open a Pomegranate: Method One with Knife and Spoon
- Score ridges
- Break apart
How to Open a Pomegranate: Method Two with water and Jar
- Slice the pomegranate in segments.
- Submerge segment in a bowl of water and gently loosen with fingers (or shake if you have a lid)
- As you work with the arils loose, the pith will float and the seeds will sink.
- Skim the pith of the top, drain water, and enjoy!
