Deseed A Pomegranate In 10 Seconds Using A Wooden Spoon

Pomegranates take a lot of work to peel and deseed. Forget the bowl of water; you can deseed a pomegranate in seconds with a wooden spoon.

We originally published this post a few years back using this YouTube video, but we’ve come back with an all-new video we filmed ourselves — in slow motion, so you can see the magic happening.

If done correctly, all the seeds should fall right out into the bowl in just a few seconds. I’ve done this a few times, and it truly is awesome. Check out the video above to see it in action, or see the original video for a more detailed (and very long) explanation of how it works.

And, of course, check out all the other crazy kitchen tricks that can speed up your cooking like this one.
