How to Deseed a Pomegranate in 1 Minute

Author Rebecca Lindamood


  • 1 pomegranate


  • Score about 1/4-inch deep into the pomegranate around the equator of the fruit. Do not cut all the way into the fruit, you really just need to cut through the red exterior to where it begins to turn white. Push your fingers into the seam and use them to pry the fruit apart into halves.
  • Put one half, cut side down, on your hand over a bowl. Use a sturdy wooden spoon to thwack the pomegranate firmly a couple of times, turn the fruit a quarter of a turn and repeat. Be sure you smack every inch of the fruit,repeating until all of the seeds have been released into the bowl. Repeat with the second half. Clean out any little bits of pith that fell into the bowl. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
