How to Dissect a Pomegranate

By none


I was so excited when I saw pomegranate’s on sale at the store the other day because I was excited to post my special trick on how to peel them! I talked about this a while ago on the blog , but wanted to bring it back because we are technically still in pomegranate season!

So this is what I do to cut out a pomegranate. I slice it down the middle at first and hope none of the red juice squirts out at me (because that $hit will stain!)

Then I put some water in a mixing bowl and dunk one half of the pomegranate in the water.

Then I go to work peeling out the arils.

The water does a great job of stopping any of the juice from squirting all over the place. It also allows the arils to sink to the bottom and the inedible skin bits float to the top.

Aren’t pomegranate’s such a pretty fruit inside?

I love all the layers and the arils inside, such a deep beautiful red.

Pomegranate’s are not the easiest fruit to dissect, but this little water trick makes the end process a lot less messy!

There was one or two I had to manually dissect, but the rest were pretty easy to pop out!

After everything is peeled, I just scoop away the excess white skin and then drain out the arils.

They go from this – sitting in water

To the strainer – water free!

Now we have finally gotten to the good stuff!

There are so many awesome things you can do with pomegranate arils.

Add them to oatmeal, green monsters, yogurt…

You can add them to martini’s, sparkling water or other beverages for a nice pop of color and flavor.

They can also add a nice crunch to salads, desserts, appetizers or sauces.

Pretty much there isn’t anything a pomegranate can’t do, am I right?
