    Perfect timing, as I was opening a pomegranate to put the arils on my greek yogurt this morning… Unfortunately, mine didn’t work as “beautifully” as yours! ;-( Only maybe a half dozen or so fell out from each quarter–although I think they *were* loosened with the whacking… but I also had juice flying all over the place! Lol… Wiping down my kitchen cabinets and counters right now! 😉

    Do you think it was over ripe Jan? Mine didn’t splatter at all in fact I was a bit surprised how it wasn’t “messy” at all!

    I don’t know, Halle… when I “nudged” them out with my fingers, there wasn’t any extra juice. They’ve been in my fridge since before Christmas, but my CSA says they keep in the fridge for about 3 months. I have used the wooden spoon whacking method on my pomegranates before I cut them open, and that has loosened them up quite a bit, without the juice “spray”! 😉

    While they’re in season, I have been eating one everynight. I kind of like digging the seeds out. I just wear a apron up to my neck just in case they spray. They do stain.

    It’s never that easy!  They don’t all come out that way.  The best way I have found to get the seeds out is to cut the fruit in half and put it in a large bowl of water.  Use a spoon to scoop them out UNDER the water.  Easy as pie!  Can’t wait to try these candies.

    Nice video, maybe try rolling the pomegranate on the board before cutting into the fruit, just like an orange.
    I like the idea of whacking on the back of the fruit. Good job.

  7. Buffy Miller says:

    I used to make pomegranate jelly from the juice. Really tasty!

    Can’t wait until they’re back in season. One daily

    Hi Halle!
    I just watched this video and tried opening the pomegranate I bought last weekend! I had a few come loose with the spoon whacking, but most of them seemed “stuck tight.” Any ideas why? I had some juice spray but not much. I ended up turning the pieces out and pulled them off the white pith…wondering why they didn’t shake loose as easily as yours…Thanks for your help!!
    Lisa :)

    Pomegranate fruit is eaten as a sweet or sour and sweet pomegranate is a fruit that has many health benefits. Pomegranate juice contains vitamin C and also contains minerals that are beneficial to the body in high doses.
