precious pomegranate juice

It’s so tasty, there was only a glass left for 3 people to share.

Next time, I’ll sticky tape my mouth when doing this! 😉

Serves: 4


8 medium pomegranates (even if they’re partially unripe)

1/2 cup sugar



Cut the pomegranates in half.

Seed the pomegranates using your preferred method. The one I use is as below:

Place the palm of your hand over the seeds.

Hold the pomegranate half over a large bowl.

Use a spoon (or any kitchen utensil) to hit the skin to rip the seeds away.

When your hand fills with seeds, drop them into the bowl and continue until the half is mostly empty.

Use your thumb to rip away any left over seeds.

Do this for all the pomegranates.

Remove any membranes (the white bits) from the seeds.

Place the pomegranate seeds in a blender.

Add water until you reach the top of the pomegranates (so for example, the seeds reached the “2 cup” marking on my blender, add enough water to reach the “2 cup” marking).

Add half a cup of sugar (-or to taste – of course add less than 1/2 a cup if your pommies are sweet!)

Blend for 3 – 5 seconds on the slowest setting (and literally no more!)

Fact: blending the pomegranates for too long will cause the inner seed membrane to rip and spread a feverishly bitter taste throughout the juice.

Drain the juice from the inner seeds using a fine sieve.

Discard the seeds. Add the juice into a jug.

Serve on a hot day with your favourite snack.
