  • 1 pomegranate


  • Place the pomegranate with the ends of the fruit facing out on the side, not up and down. Slice the pomegranate in half. Take a half and begin to loosen the pulp from edges and the seeds with your hands.
  • Turn the half piece over a bowl and hit the outer rind with a heavy wooden spoon. A good portion of the seeds will have loosened up and fall right into the bowl. Break the remainder of the rind and pulp apart with your hands to pluck out the remaining seeds. Repeat with the second half of the fruit.
