How to peel a pomegranate easily and neatly


The season of unusually healthy and very tasty fruits - pomegranates - is coming. Adults love them for their juiciness and pleasant sourness, children are amused by beautiful seeds in bright pulp. But do we know how to clean the pomegranate correctly, so as not to splatter everything around and not to lose part of what is inside? Today we are going to show you several ways on how to peel a pomegranate.

What is important to know when peeling a pomegranate

The first thing you should know is how to choose the right ripe fruit. Its rind should be dry, brownish in color, tightly fitting the grains. If all the conditions are met, then you have a ripe fruit that is easy to peel.

Whichever cleaning method you choose, you may need:

  • sharp knife;
  • deep bowl or saucepan;
  • a tablespoon or kitchen hammer for beating meat.

These methods will help you not to damage the grains and not get dirty. You will be surprised how easy it is to peel a pomegranate.

  1. Cut off the top of the pomegranate.

    Cut off the top of the pomegranate to get to the pulp and grains.

    Make cuts along the white streaks, turn the fruit over and tap it well with a spoon. The higher the walls of the bowl into which you knock out the seeds, the less chance of splashing juice around everything.

    Tap the fruit with a spoon to beat out all the grains.

  2. The second method will help you to virtually avoid splashing the juice. Prepare a colander and a bowl of water. Cut off the top of the pomegranate, cut into shallow slices along the white veins. Immerse the fruit in a bowl of water, begin to separate the kernels from the rind. The pomegranate seeds are juicy and heavy, due to this they will sink to the bottom, and the light skin and white core will remain on the surface of the water. Catch them, strain the water through a colander and pour the pomegranate seeds into a plate
  3. The third method is also "clean" but more inventive. You will need a hammer, dumplings and a silicone baking dish. Cut the pomegranate in half. Build such a simple structure: put a dumpling maker on a bowl, and half a pomegranate on top of it. Cover it with a silicone mold. Tap with a hammer until all the grains are knocked out. A few strokes are enough. Plus, you won't lose a drop of juice.

For this method, you only need a knife once. At the same time, you are guaranteed not to lose a single grain.

  1. Your knife doesn't need to be perfectly sharp. Cut off a thin layer of the cap-top with it.
  2. Now take a deep container of water. For example, a bowl with high edges, a large salad bowl, and a bowl.

  3. Dip the cut pomegranate into the water with both hands. Holding the fruit upside down, rest your thumbs on the pith and break the pomegranate in two along a line along the white partitions.
  4. Do not remove the pomegranate halves from the water, separate the seeds from the peel with your fingers. Do not grind the skin, but discard the empty pieces immediately.
  5. When all the grains are in the water, strain everything in the bowl through a sieve.

This way, your hands will stay clean and you will not splatter everything around with juice. The water can be used for drinking or watering flowers

We clean with a ladle

For this method, you need a deep plate, a knife and a ladle with which you will knock out the seeds from the pomegranate.

Wash the pomegranate, cut off the top, and pick out the tough part of the white flesh. Cut the lower part of the fruit to the pits.

Cut the pomegranate into two halves, and stick the knife to a shallow depth, which is enough to cut the skin. While holding the pomegranate over a plate, push the pieces apart so that the seeds fall out.

Put on gloves, take half a pomegranate and hold it over a plate, grains down. Put the plate in the sink, and, holding half of the pomegranate, tap on the peel with the back of the ladle until all the seeds come out.
