Whether you’re into this fruit or not, you should still know how to cut these mysterious, juicy creatures. They are a great, 100-ish calorie snack and can be served fresh, frozen or juiced.
Disclaimer: change into clothes you can get dirty (pomegranate juice will stain) before gathering up a knife, cutting board and large bowl. Head to your sink and begin.
Cut off the very top and bottom of the fruit, and then cut it in half. Cut all the way through the skin but not all the way through the pulp (you don’t want to burst all the seeds.)
More from Spoon University:
1. Put the seeds in a serving bowl and start eating! You can eat the entire seeds (they’re full of fiber), or just chew on them, swallow the juice, and spit the pulp out. Pomegranate seeds can also stay fresh in an airtight container for about 2-3 days.
2. Use a blender and pulse the seeds to make juice. I’d recommend adding a spoonful of sugar to make the drink a bit sweeter.
3. Freeze them to snack on later.
