How to cut a pomegranate – as shown on TikTok!
Grab a paring knife and make little cuts to remove the top portion without touching the seeds below. Use the knife at a 45 to 90-degree angle to make this part easier. Once the top is off, you will see white lines that divide the fruit into segments.
Cut along those white edges till you reach the bottom of the fruit and press open the fruit. You might have to apply a bit of pressure to crack it open properly. Now de-seed the pomegranate by removing the skin from the seeds into a bowl of water.
Once you are done with this process, all the white edges and the skin will be floating on the water surface that you can easily sweep off. This will leave you will the seeds in the water that you can strain and start eating.
The de-seeding process can also be done using a spoon. You can turn a segment upside down and whack the skin with a spoon so that the seeds will fall right off. Make sure to put a dish underneath though.
After learning this hack, you will never have to worry about cutting the pomegranate in your favourite outfit as it won’t get stained. What’s the messiest way you have cut up a pomegranate? Share your story in the comments below.
