If you’ve never opened a pomegranate or you already have a method of removing the seeds, you’ll want to watch my instructions on How to Seed a Pomegranate.
Its been awhile since I put something on my blog in the “tips & tricks” category. I often forget that I may know a few kitchen hacks here and there. Much like my awesome hair dresser thinks its common knowledge on how to create barrel curls with a flat iron, yet when I try it I look like I used a giant crimping iron. I recently started making videos and my sister recommended that I show some kind of tip and the first thing that came to mind was how to crack open a pomegranate and get the seeds out. That is, how to crack it open without looking like you’re walking away from a violent crime seen because you’re spattered with red. I don’t remember when I learned this trick, but I’ve never strayed. I’ve seen a lot of techniques where you cut the entire fruit in half, but I hate doing that because you slice all of the seeds in your path. I’ve also seen a trick where you beat the outside with a spoon. I have yet to try that method, simply because the way I do it works so well. there’s just something so zen about popping those seeds out too. Instead of explaining it, go ahead and watch the video. Fair warning: if your volume is on, you won’t be able to get the song out of your head for approximately 2.3 days.
