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.
