Consider subscribing to my blog, will ya? I've got lots of options in that column right there: RSS, email, Bookmark me, and more.
I absolutely love pomegranate's. So, when my husband surprised me with these puppies
I knew he loved me all over again.
Only, now my daughter loves them too, which means, I can either sit with two kids yelling I am not pulling them apart fast enough or peel them and then let them have their share.
Personally, I prefer to sit on the couch with a good movie, peeling mine as I eat them by the handful. It's relaxing, and they are one of my favorite treat's by far.
To seed a pomegranate can be rather easy though. Want to know the trick?
First, cut your pomegranate's with a deep star at the top.
Soak them in water. Use a strainer to help catch the seeds.
Then, you can get to peeling. Just make sure to do it under the water. That way if a seed pops, it's not squirting everywhere.
Don't mind the quality of these photos. My four year old was "helping" me so I could share photos on my blog.
While you're peeling, toss the yucky stuff out of your strainer. The seeds will fall to the bottom. The other stuff will float.
If you're sorting while you go, when you're done it should look like this.
Pull up your strainer.
I only picked out a few more pieces to take this photo. Literally, maybe like five.
Ready to serve.
Put in bowls for a snack or children's lunches. Great on salads, too.
What do you do with your pomegranate seeds?
