How to Clean a Pomegranate

The process of removing them from the fruit and cleaning them appears to be difficult at first, but it is actually rather simple once you get the feel of it. Pomegranate seeds may be washed and prepared for ingestion in as little as five minutes by following these easy procedures.

Try this water hack

Because pomegranate juice stains, this is one of the least messy methods available. Approximately half-fill a big mixing bowl with water. To prepare the pomegranate, submerge it in water and carefully take apart the skin, poke the seeds out, and set it aside. When you’ve removed all of the seeds, skim out the pulp and add it to your compost pile. Fill a strainer with water and seeds, then strain the water and seeds again, picking off any leftover pulp particles.

Through Spoon

When you have the pomegranate in your hand over a large bowl with the seed side down, hit it hard with the back of a wooden spoon to break it up. The seeds will simply fall into the basin as they fall. Repeat the process with the remaining quarters, plucking out pulp as needed.

Bonbon Break is a short break from work

  • A medium-sized bowl
  • Water
  • Knife for chopping vegetables
  •  A sieve that’s also held in the palm of one’s hand
  • Fill the bowl with water until it is two-thirds full.
  • Cut Xs into the base of each pomegranate and place them in a basin of water for 10 minutes to hydrate.
  • To prepare the pomegranates, quarter them and carefully roll the arils into a bowl of warm water.
  • The pulp remains will come to the top, whereas the seeds will fall to the bottom of the container.
  • In a separate bowl, skim away any extra pulp from the surface of the water and discard it.
  • Scoop the arils out of the dish and discard any additional pieces of pulp that have gotten stuck in the bottom

Taking the Pomegranate Out of the Jar

  • Remove the flower end by cutting a cone shape into the top of the blossom

To slice through the pomegranate, place a carving knife at a little angle precisely towards the bloom end of the fruit, and afterwards slice through it all with blade. Remove a cone-shaped piece of fruit from the bloom by cutting around it in a circle and setting it aside.

  • Remove the stem end from the bottom of the stem

The stem of a pomegranate may be identified by turning it over and looking for a tiny, brown, and round form. It should be simple to locate. Cut a thin, disc-like shape from the stem by holding the knife’s edge close to the side of it and slicing it off.

  • Slice the skin of the fruit along the ridges on the sides, but do not cut into the meat
  • Closely examine the pomegranate starting at the top and looking for smooth ridges or bulges that go down both sides of it from the bloom tip to the top of the stem of the fruit to determine its quality. Cut down each ridge with your knife, cutting through all the snuffed shell just at flower’s end and bringing it all the way down to the stem as you do so.
  • Using your hands, separate the pomegranate chunks into smaller pieces

In both hands, grasping one piece of the pomegranate and pressing your fingertips into the slits along one side of the fruit. With your hands, gently separate the sections of the fruit to loosen and remove them, then repeat the process for the other sections of the fruit. Pulling the parts apart gently will prevent any seeds from falling out.

Taking the Seeds Out and Cleaning them

  • Fill a basin halfway with water and add the pomegranate slices

Fill a large mixing basin halfway with warm water, just enough to cover the pomegranate pieces completely. Fill the bowl halfway with water and drop them in one by one, or two at a time, if your bowl is smaller.

  • Gently press the fruit’s edges down to enable the fruit to split up and finish the seeds inside

Pull them apart to reveal the seeds, and then allow them to fall into the water. Warm water will not only make it simpler to open the fruit, but it will also wash away any remaining seeds.

  • More seeds will be knocked out if you hit the rear of the pomegranate

Remove the part from of the water and flip it inside out so the skin can be seen on the outside. Holding it over the water with one hand and forcefully smash this with the spoon to blow out whatever seeds that might have remained attached.

  • Using your hands, carefully remove any residual seeds from the dish and put it in a separate basin
  • Roll the pomegranate over again, this time looking for any leftover seeds on the surface of the fruit’s surface. You may either pluck these out with your hands or use a spoon to smash them free, and then put them into in the water with both the other of the shrimp to finish cooking them off.
  • Using a slotted spoon, carefully scoop out the chunks of white pith

When the red pomegranate seeds are added to the bowl, they should sink to the bottom of the bowl and the white pith should float to the top. These should be removed from the water using a large spoon or even a sieve to avoid cross contamination.

  • Remove the pomegranate seeds from the water and consume or store them

Using a colander, remove the excess water from the pomegranates. Instead of using a colander, you may cover and remove water from of the bowl using a smooth surface including a chopping board or a lid, leaving a tiny gap accessible at the bottom.
