But the good news is that most pomegranates come as ripen, which you see in the supermarket. Additionally, make sure to pick pomegranates that are heavier to make more juices. Avoid picking pomegranates that are shrunken, bruised, or have very delicate smudges.

Now, you will need to break the fruits apart as you have not cut them fully into pieces. Hold the whole pomegranate in one hand and take it apart one by one. Don’t try to force it excessively because it may become messy, or the arils will come out from the thick skin.
Step 5 —Collecting the Pomegranates arils (Seeds)
After breaking the Pomegranates apart, you need to remove the arils (seeds) from them. Kindly pick a medium-sized bowl and take out the seeds from the fruits using a wooden spoon, or you can use your hands to fall them out easily.
There are many soft skins you will notice that comes out along with the seeds. It is time-consuming to separate them one by one. One trick you can follow is taking a pot and filling it out with water. Then pour all the seeds inside it; after a few minutes, you will notice all the white parts will float off the top, and you can easily separate them.
Step 6 — Straining the Seeds
Remove all the soft white skin from the seeds by straining them and collect the fresh seeds from the bowl. You can give the seeds a quick soak to make them more fresh and eatable.

Now, it is ready to pour inside the blender to cut them smoothly. Cutting Pomegranates Seeds? Feeling odd? When you use a blender to cut pomegranates seeds, you are not blending them thoroughly. Instead, you are cutting the seeds into pieces to collect more juices from the arils.
Here, one thing you should remember that you need to operate the blender at the lowest speed. It will be the best option if your blender has any additional chopping or cutting features. Switch on your blender and run the machine slowly. Monitor and give it a check whether the seeds are being cut thoroughly. Avoid overdoing it.
Step 8 — Collecting the juice
Take a cheesecloth or strainer and pour out all the seeds along with thick juice on it. Place a bowl under the cheesecloth and start squeezing the cloth as much as possible to collect the maximum amount of juices from it.
Don’t forget to clean your favorite blender right away to ensure the most extended lifespan. Once you think no more juice will come, check whether you have gotten a sufficient amount of juice for drinking.
If you think you need more juices, then cut more pomegranates and collect juices from them. Pour the liquid into a bottle. Try some right away to taste the fresh flavor.
