  • How to Remove Seeds from a Pomegranate:.
  • Fill a large bowl with water. Hold the pomegranate in the water and slice the crown off. Lightly score the fruit into quarters, from crown to stem end. Keeping the fruit under water carefully break it apart. Then gently separate the arils (seeds) from the outer skin and white pith.
  • The seeds will drop to the bottom of the bowl and the pith will float to the surface. Discard the pith then pour the seeds into a colander. Rinse and pat dry. The seeds can be frozen in an airtight container or sealable bag for up to 3 months.
  • Divide the seeds among four glass serving bowls. Sprinkle the fruit in each bowl with 1 tsp of orange flower water & 1 1/2 tsp of sugar. Let stand for 1 hour before serving.

    Absolutely delicious! I do love orange blossom water on fruit in general. This would be "To die for" if my pomegranates had been really red nice ones. Perfect way to remove the seeds too! I will definitely make this again. Made for Ramadan Tag.

    This was wonderful! I am still in awe over the method of seperating the seeds from the pomegranate. You should post the method under 'novelty' if it is not already there. Made for 'Newest Zaar'
