How to Remove Pomegranate Seeds


I wanted some pomegranate seeds for a festive touch in a salad and remembered seeing this post last year. It worked much better for me than other methods I’ve tried 🙂

I thought I’d reblog in case anyone else finds it useful, but be warned, once you get to this blog there’s loads of cool stuff to read, so you might be there a while!

The Zero-Waste Chef

Did you know that in the story of the Garden of Eden, Eve may have tempted Adam with a pomegranate and not an apple?* I may be projecting my own pomegranate issues here, but I imagine that today’s shoppers, lured by the pomegranate’s deep red shade, plump pregnant shape and promise of juicy sweet seeds, experience that same temptation and buy a lot of these fall fruits only to let them go to waste because they simply don’t know how to remove the seeds.

My little photo-collage above illustrates just one of many methods to harvest pomegranate seeds. I like this one because it leaves your work area very clean.

So, if scholars are correct, how did Adam get to those seeds?

I'm a British doctor who married an Aussie, moved to Tasmania, and bought an olive grove. Now making extra virgin olive oil and olive leaf tea. I'd love you to join my adventures in the beautiful setting of Southern Tasmania.

  1. I tend to cut them in half and bash them with the back of a big knife. Rather messy at times but it works for me.


I'd love to know what you think! Tell me here :-)
