Are you a pomegranate lover who dreads the peeling process? Those ruby red arils (seeds) are like nature’s candy – bursting with sweet-tart flavor and loaded with antioxidants. But getting to those juicy seeds often feels like a battle thanks to the fruit’s stubborn membrane and tendency to squirt juice everywhere. Well, pomegranate fans, I’ve got game-changing news for you! There’s an incredibly easy hack for how to peel a pomegranate that will save you time, eliminate mess, and have you snacking on those brilliant red arils in no time. This method is so simple yet so genius, you’ll wonder why you didn’t discover it sooner.


I’ll walk you through the quick steps, but I highly recommend watching the video tutorial. Seeing this pomegranate peeling trick in action will blow your mind with its effortlessness. No special tools required, just a sturdy knife, a bowl of water and a spoon.

Okay, are you ready for your pomegranate life to change forever? Let’s dive into this game-changing hack!

First, slice off the crown of the pomegranate to expose the top. Then carefully score the rind in quarters from top to bottom, cutting just deep enough to go through the red outer layer. Be careful not to cut all the way through.

Cut off the top of the pomegranate like this.

Then, cut slightly into the sides where the white membranes run through the fruit.

It should look like this once you cut into all of the sides. Now, comes the fun, cool part you’ll be pretty amazed by!

Fill a large bowl with water. Next, place the pomegranate in the water and hold the cut pomegranate. Use both hands to break the pomegranate apart under water. The juice stays in the bowl and off of your counter, hands and clothing.

This releases the pomegranate membranes, causing the arils to pour out into the bowl or spoon with ease.  Better yet, as you separate the seeds, the white rind floats to the top while the seeds stay on the bottom of the bowl.

Within 30 seconds, all those glistening ruby red seeds will be ready for you to enjoy. No stringy membrane, no splattered juice, just pure, beautiful pomegranate perfection. It’s truly night-and-day compared to the tedious way most of us have been peeling pomegranates.

Once you see just how effortless this method is, you’ll never go back to manually de-seeding a pomegranate again. It’s the quickest, cleanest, most mess-free way to access those nutritious little gem-toned arils.

Now you can finally eat pomegranates with reckless abandon! Sprinkle them over salads, yogurt parfaits, oatmeal, or just eat them by the handful. You can even use this peeling hack for recipes that call for pomegranate arils. Just think of all the dishes you can easily add a vibrant pop of flavor to.


For me, this is a total game-changer. I’ve always loved the taste of pomegranate but dreaded the peeling process so much that I rarely bought them. Now that I have this foolproof trick up my sleeve, I’m putting pomegranates on everything! I recently served a big bowl of the bright red arils at a party for some pre-dinner snacking. People couldn’t get enough of them and were so impressed by how perfect and mess-free they looked. No specks of white membrane, no squirt marks on the tablecloth. Just pure pomegranate goodness.

This hack is also perfect for getting kids to eat more pomegranates. The arils look like gorgeous rubies that are fun to eat, and there’s no mess for them to make in the process. It’s a triple win – nutritious, tasty, and low cleanup!
