I love me some pomegranate seeds & my hubs, well he just eats spoonfuls! They are tart, sweet and bursting with flavor. Major antioxidants & loaded with vitamin C – this super fruit should be a part of anyones diet!
One major issue with these babies is the hurdle of actually getting the seeds out…well fret no longer – it is ridiculously easy & a so much cheaper then buying containers full of pre-seeded pomegranates! My grocery store was selling a small container for $10 & one pomegranate for $2, best part is they sell these two right next to each other! Well HA…I will no longer be falling into their trap!
- fill a large bowl with cold water (few inches shy from the rim)
- cut pomegranate in half
- submerge a half of the pomegranate under the water & peel back the sides & white membrane – seeds will sink to the bottom (continue with other half)
- remove excess membrane or skin from bowl & strain
Enjoy these tasty nuggets plain, on a bed of greens with balsamic dressing or my all time fave – fage 0% with honey & wheat germ – perfect breakfast, snack or dessert!
Store the seeds in an airtight container & enjoy for up to 3 days!
