Pomegranates are one of God's best creation! It is such a luscious fruit and loaded with goodness.

How to de seed Pomegranates

1. With a sharp knife cut off the top of the crown. Make sure you don't go too deep and cut through the pomegranate arils (seeds), that will cause the juice to splatter. And don't cut too little that you can't see the inside. 

2. By nature, the pomegranate arils are placed in sections.

3. Follow the section and with the knife cut along the section. Do not go through and through, just make an incision. Sometimes there will be four sections sometimes six.
4. If you follow the sections correctly and make incisions you will not cut any arils.

5. Gently pry open the cut sections, it will come off easily. 
6. You will find a white membrane dividing the sections, you can peel them off easily and remove the arils.

7. Remove the arils and put in an airtight box and refrigerate it, if not using immediately.

1. The pomegranate juice will stain hence I use stainless steel plate. If using a plastic or wooden chopping board, you can use vinegar or lemon juice to remove the stains.
