Now, how hard it could be to seed a pomegranate? Well, its not all about smartness, friends! Did you ever make a bloody mess of it and painted the whole kitchen red? Then, this post is for you. I have seen people, inconsiderately putting a sharp knife through it and squirt n spill the juice around them! That’s certainly not a good way to pull-apart this fruit! My mother says, its a curse to use an iron knife on tender fruits! How true. Yes, it could be done lot easier if you learn a few tricks. Believe me, you won’t spill a speck!
The tough leathery skin holds these ruby-red jewel like seeds or arils of the pomegranate. We need to dismember these shiny beads gently.
- First, choose a plump fruit with a soft skin. Do not go far super-fry skinned ones, they are not fresh!
- Bring a wide prep-bowl and a pairing knife will do.
- If you hate staining your palm, wear a gloves; have some kitchen towels next to you and stay close to running tap water.
- Now, make 4-6 gentle slits over the fruit’s leathery bark…do not cut through!
- Pull the skin apart, the arils will be bright enough. Put them in a prep-bowl and fill it with water.
- Gently de-seed under the water…this way, the juice won’t spill over everything around you.
- Store them in an airtight container and leave it in the refrigerator until use.
