They aren’t around for very long each year, so if you are a fan of those sweet and tart pomegranate seeds like I am you have to get your hands on as many of them as you can during their brief season. Not only do they taste great, but they add a rich, beautiful color to holiday dishes and drinks at this time of year. It can be a lot of fun to sprinkle these little gems over a salad or drop some into a fruity martini to add a touch of sparkle. The only problem with pomegranates is getting those stubborn little seeds out of their protective casing without completely ruining your clothes and temporarily staining your skin.
The most dedicated among us are willing to go through the hassle of extracting the seeds, but if there could be an easier way that didn’t leave you looking like you committed a murder I think that pretty much everyone would be interested in trying it out. Well, apparently there is such a tool. PomegranateART is designed to quickly and cleanly remove the seeds from the pomegranate. I was very sceptical when I first looked at the picture of the gadget, but after watching the video I am quite amazed. I would love to try it out for myself.
The device consists of three pieces – a bowl, grid and cover. According to the video, all you have to do is cut the pomegranate in half, place the grid over the bowl, set one half of the fruit on top (cut side down), cover and tap. The seeds appear to come out completely and without the mess. Pretty amazing!
