Equipment

  • A juicer or a blender or a freezer bag
  • A spatula or a rolling pin or a big spoon
  • A big bowl
  • A mesh strainer
  • A sharp chef's knife
  • A chopping board

Materials

  • 3 big pomegranate fruits

Instructions

  • Clean the pomegranates
  • Roll them on a flat surface to make the skin soft and also to release the arils from the skin easily
  • Place the pomegranates on a chopping board
  • Using a sharp knife, cut around the top that looks like a crown and remove the top
  • You'll see that the pomegranate is divided by a white membrane, cut the skin following the membranes so that you don't cut the arils. (See the image on the post)
  • Put a large bowl in your sink, hold the now cut pomegranate in your hand, the open part facing the bowl so that arils will fall in the bowl
  • Using a rolling pin, a spatula, or a big spoon, hit the back of the pomegranate that is in your hand
  • Most of the arils will fall in the bowl, remove the rest with your fingers
  • Remove any pith (white membrane) that fell in the bowl with arils. They can make your juice bitter
  • If using a juicing machine, go ahead a make your juice
  • If using a blender, put the arils in the blender and pulse then blend at a high speed for a few seconds. Rince the bowl
  • Put a mesh strainer on the bowl and pour the juice from the blender.
  • Using a spatula or a spoon, filter the juice. Press hard on the residue on the mesh to get the maximum of the juice. Pour the pomegranate juice in a glass
  • If you have neither a juice machine nor a blender, then put the arils in a freezing bag,
  • Close the freezer bag making sure you remove as much air possible so that the bag doesn't burst
  • Using a rolling pin or your hands, press on the arils till they burst to release their juice
  • Once you are done pressing, carefully cut one edge of the freezer bag and pour the pomegranate juice in a glass.
  • Enjoy your freshly homemade pomegranate juice.
  • Thank you for sharing this recipe. Blessings

Notes

  • While you can enjoy some sweet fresh pomegranate using the freezer bag method, please note that you can, however, not make a lot of juice using this method. The juice will be less and very clear since the other two methods are grinding the whole seeds.
  • If you happen to make extra pomegranate juice, keep the remaining in an air-tight bottle, place it in your fridge, and drink it to the best the following day, this way you'll enjoy all the benefits of the antioxidants.
