I’ve tried several different ways to seed pomegranates, each touted as “the” easy way. So when a video showed up in my Facebook timeline this morning, claiming to be yet another easy way to seed this fruit, I’m sure my eyes did a little roll.
As luck would have it, I had a pomegranate in my kitchen. While preparing my lunch, I decided to give it a whack (literally). It turns out, that it worked! My apologies to Martha Stewart for the eye roll.
In case you’re not familiar with pomegranate seeds, they’re delicious. My kids and I both love them. The seeds are encapsulated within a membrane that’s filled with pomegranate juice. When you eat one, you get a splash of the sweet and tart juice, then you are left with a small seed to chew.
Pomegranates are great on salads, as well as by the spoonful. And now that they’re not so much work, I foresee them making a regular appearance in our winter fruit rotation.
(As you would expect, pomegranate seeds are 0P+ for Weight Watchers followers.)
