How to Make Pomegranate Juice

Out of desperation (and lack of a juicer), I extracted pomegranate juice in this exact same way a while back. It did work wonders, and it is especially important to remove all of the white membranes or it will be bitter.

I would love to see a pictorial on how you peel and prepare the pomegranate...I usually just whack them into quarters and have my nimble-fingered children pull all the arils out (which they love to do anyway!)

For low mess, score the pom skin in the shape of a cross, centered on the blossom end. You only have to score about halfway down, to the 'equator'. Now (here's the big tip), dunk it in a sink or bowl of lukewarm water. Tear it apart with your fingers, and extract seeds underwater. All the waste will float, and can be easily skimmed off. No stains, either!

Hi Jackie! I'm finally back. I agree, fresh pomagranate juice is a world away from the bottled stuff. The way I extract seeds is to cut the pom in half and then tap the back of it over a bowl with a dowel. The seeds fly right out, but the kitchen can look like a mass murder occurred. I'll have to try the submerged in water trick that Kathy listed.

Hi Jackie
I must say your mom in law is an expert. Yes, I know I lost a lot of value juices while juicing pomegranates but didn't know how to yield more until I read your post. Great tips. Thank you for sharing.
