The word “Pomegranate” is Latin and means “seeded apple”. Each fruit contains about 600 seeds called arils. The arils are edible part of the fruit, not the white pith. There are numerous methods to harvest the seeds. I have tried various approaches, and have found my favorite. The Water Bath Method is what works best for me. And, I’m happy to share it with you! Pomegranates are messy and can stain, but if you know how to get the seeds out properly, it is well worth it! Toss them on salads, overtop meat, pasta or you can also float them in a festive drink!
How to Seed a Pomegranate
Pretty Simple, eh?
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND:
Pomegranate Arils, Pama Liquor & Prosecco
(You can also substitute Pomegranate Juice for the Liquor and Champagne or Sparkling Wine for the Prosecco).
