Years ago I fell in love with pomegranate flavored…well pretty much anything. But then I bought a pomegranate. Um…what was I supposed to do with THAT?
Fast forward a few years and some well meaning person in my life told me I was to eat the seeds. I tried again, purchasing a pomegranate and scooping out the seeds. And I about broke my tooth! I steered clear of pomegranates themselves while enjoying the delicious flavors they had to offer in drinks and such.
Over Christmas however, this all changed. My family was going through pomegranate seeds like they were crack. Gorgeous, red shiny beads of crack. I was encouraged to take another try and I’m so happy I did. I’m now addicted to these little natural candies and bought a big box of them at Costco yesterday. I looked around to find an easy way to get the seeds out and found this fantastic article which is now our link of the week!
I found her method worked best when using a wooden spoon. I would first whack around the sides (I held my hand to the side, rather than under the fruit). Then when the sides were empty I’d whack away at the top of the pomegranate. It’s super easy and even a bit fun. A little bit of a workout and you have a tasty treat when you’re finished. Enjoy!
