I need to Google: How to juice pomegranate without looking like a murder victim.
Because every time I juice a pomegranate, I end up looking like a scene from a horror movie. Every. Freaking. Time.
Buy bottled, you say? No…! Fresh pomegranate juice is a world away from the bottled stuff!
These ruby red round heavily seeded fruit, called “anar” is aplenty here. And I can’t, for the life of me, understand why I only bought it now. FIVE years of my fruit-juice-drinking life has gone to waste! Baby Ben loves fresh fruit juices so I take effort in taking out the seeds, squirting blood red juice on myself (and all over the kitchen counter) and then crush it with spoon on a strainer (and splatter more blood red juice again).
It’s a tedious job but every drop is worth it. But then again, I want to know other ways to do it, preferably less messy. Some suggested to put everything in the blender, including the seeds, blend it and strain. Somehow, crushing the seeds sounds so unsexy. I bet it will make the juice a bit bitter too.
So folks, do you like pomegranate? Do you have tips on how to juice it effectively?
