How to Prepare a Pomegranate
Knowing how to prepare a pomegranate can save you endless faffing! Removing the tasty flesh from the bitter pith can be a little awkward, but this ‘how to’ breaks down the process simply for you.
1- Cut in half. Slice the pomegranate across the middle into halves.
2- Knock theseeds free. Hold one half with the cut-side faced downwards over a large bowl. Using the back of a spoon, hit the pomegranate firmly all over to loosen the seeds.
3- Squeeze. Squeeze the pomegranate if there are any stubborn areas. Pick through the seeds to remove any bits of white pith.
Should you have a little one that you’re trying to keep occupied whilst preparing dinner, give them one half of the pomegranate and a toothpick with which to pick out and eat the seeds. This will keep them amused for a good length of time.
