DIRECTIONS

  • Cut off the top and bottom, approximately 1/4 inch, of the Pomegranate.
  • Score (by cutting almost through the outer skin) around the body of it.
  • Submerge the whole fruit in cold water.
  • Pry it apart on the scores.
  • The ripe Arrils (seed sacks) will sink, while the unripe ones will float.
  • Once you've done approximately 5 or 6, just gather the Arrils.
  • Put approximately 1.5 cups in a blender container. Measure into the same blender container 3 cups water and Ice combined.
  • Top with 1.5 cups more Arrils.
  • Turn on the blender to liquefy, let it run approximately 3 minutes. (To break open the seed sacks.)
  • Strain the resulting liquid through doubled or tripled cheesecloth, or if you happen to have a piece of cotton cloth, you can use that.
  • I find it works best if you let it rest for 24 hours.
