How to Get Those Pomegranate Seeds [VIDEO]


Pomegranate seeds are delicious. They are also incredibly good for you and have been linked various health benefits (sometimes falsely), as well as increasing libido.

If you’ve never tried one these curious fruits, it’s worth picking one up at the stores to give it a go, but getting at the seeds can be a bit tricky. The juice of the seeds show no relent for staining fingers and clothing and anything else.

I was going to write about my trick for removing the seeds, but this youtube video does a better job than I can do in writing. (If a picture is worth a thousand words, a video must be worth a million.)

About the Author

I spent the last five years earning my PhD in Engineering. I enjoy all types of science and writing, so I am trying out a new career path in science publication and communication. Recently, I have moved to Oxford, England. As an environmentally-conscious person, Oxford is a great place to live…notably there is no car required. I love to talk about vegan cooking, plant-based diets and the benefits of such, so just ask if you are interested. I do ballet for fun and love kitties.

  • Ha. I just received two pomegranates in my CSA box yesterday and was saying to my husband: I’m going to have to go on YouTube and find a video on how to eat these! Thanks for saving me the time. Great post!

    • I am so jealous of these pomegranates in your lives! I’ll have to ask Margie if we can get them in GA. UNLESS SHE IS READING THIS, in which case…hi Margie!
