How to Open a Pomegranate the Easy Way

This is by far the easiest and fastest way to get the arils out of a pomegranate.

  1. Run a small sharp knife around the fruit trying not to pierce any arils. Don’t just cut straight through because then this gets really, seriously messy.
  2. Carefully open the fruit in two halves.
  3. Take other of the halves on your palm, seeds facing down. Place your hand holding the fruit in a large bowl and open your fingers a little.
  4. Start whacking the fruit with a wooden spoon until all arils are fallen out. This will take less than a minute.
  5. Pick all the white parts from the arils.
Enjoy this unique fruit. Don't forget to Thank G-d by saying an after blessing.
