So, what the heck do you do with them? Looking at a pomegranate, I can't help feeling a bit perplexed. Have you wondered, too, how to use this fruit? Here is some help!
|Work your fingers into the cut and gently break it open.|
|Follow the same process on each half, breaking the fruit into quarters.|
|Gently break the seeds away from the membrane over a large bowl. One fruit will yield a generous amount of seeds.|
|Finally, gently rinse the seeds in cool water to remove any membrane that is stuck to them. Store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 days.|
Want juice? Personally, I would recommend buying it by the bottle, but if you really want to make your own ... it will take about 2 pomegranates to yield one cup of juice. Give the seeds a quick pulse in a food processor and then press through a sieve.
Though I haven't tested it, I have also read that you can freeze the seeds by spreading them in a single layer on a sheet pan until frozen and then placing them in a freezer bag.
