KC the G-Free Foodie shares the best way to open, clean and eat a pomegranate with you! (Instructions Below) Get the printable version here:

Here’s the easiest way to get the seeds (they’re actually called arils – they contain the pomegranate seed and the juice of the fruit) out of a pomegranate for eating.

1 – lay the pomegranate on it’s side, and cut directly through the center

2 – hold the pomegranate half, cut side down, over a large bowl

3 – smack the top of the pomegranate with a large spoon (I use a wooden one) so the arils fall into the bowl. rotate the pomegranate half so you can remove all the arils.

4- repeat with the other half of the pomegranate, then throw out the rind and enjoy the fruits of your labor!
