Deseed a Pomegranate illustration: this 5-stage process shows how to separate the seeds from within a pomegranate using the back of a spoon and a bowl of water.

Deseed a pomegranate

If you like pomegranate but are put off by the prospect of the effort of pulling out each individual seed and spraying pomegranate juice across the kitchen, then this is a fun and handy tip.

It brings together two techniques:

  1. a bowl of water helps stop spraying when pulling them apart and naturally separates the light fluffy pith from the seeds, and
  2. whacking them on the back with a spoon is a surprisingly effective and fun way of making the seeds shoot out.
