DIRECTIONS

  • Fill a medium-large bowl 2/3 full with water.
  • With a sharp knife, cut the crown off the pomegranate. It's the tufted end. This will expose the inner sections of the fruit.
  • Score through the skin of the fruit but leave the skin intact.
  • Submerge the pomegranate in the bowl of water and gently pry it open into sections.
  • Still working under water, remove the internal white membranes and gently pull out the seeds.
  • The seeds will sink to the bottom of the bowl and the membrane will float to the surface.
  • Discard the outer pieces of skin and white membrane, leaving only the seeds behind.
  • Lift the seeds out of the water and transfer them to a paper towel to dry.
  • The seeds can be refrigerated for up to 3 days.
