The Easiest Way to Remove Pomegranate Jewels - Random Tip of the Day

Updated on April 23, 2013

How can you get the jewels out of pomegranates?

I have personally spent one too many times picking through pomegranate halves in order to get the jewels out. Of course, I wouldn't eat them as I painstakingly plucked them out of their compacted and ordered homes, that wouldn't be much fun wouldn't it?.

As the reward for patiently and meticulously removing the jewels I would wait to enjoy them all at the same time, rather than individually.

With this new tip I have found and have now been using. All the stress, mess and time consuming tactics have been cast away to reveal an infinitely more streamline way of getting pomegranate jewels.

For this tip, you will need the following things:

- A deep bowl or pan

- A sharp Knife

- A heavy or sturdy handheld item (a woodern spoon etc)

- A pomegranate...

You will want to cut you pomegranate into two pieces, cutting through the centre.

Once you have done that you will then want to hold each of the halves (one at a time) exposing a large area of the pomegranate. Hold the Half over your bowl or pan and start to hit the half at the edges first. Do not hit too hard, as you will break the outside of the pomegranate half and create a mess. Also, do not hit the pomegranate too softly as you will get nowhere fast. Hold the half relatively close to your pan or bowl the whole time.

At first it will seem like you are not getting anywhere. If you are using a wodren spoon you might want to use the spoons side at first, rather than the spoons full surface.

After a littlebit of hitting and beating, you will notice that the jewels will start to come loose. Keep on hitting until you are satisfied that you have most of the jewels out of the pomegranate half.

I think you will agree this is a very quick, simple and easy way to get the fruit from the "case.
