Pick a pomegranate that has thin, tough, and unbroken skin. The heavier the pomegranate is, the juicier it will be.
Cut off its crown with a sharp knife.
Score the pomegranate with cuts as if you are going to break it into quarters.
Soak it in cold water. The water will loosen the seeds to make them easier to collect.
While the pomegranate is under water, gently pull fruit apart into quarters.
Run your fingers through each quarter slice to start separating the seeds.
Scoop the “fiber” up which should mostly be floating on the top of the water then drain the arils and let dry for 5 minutes.
Store the seeds if you don’t want to eat them right away. You can lay them flat in a container and refrigerate them for up to three days, or freeze them for up to six months.
Lastly….dont have your kids do it unless you plan in only having half of the amount of arils like I did! 😜😜
