Are Pomegranate seeds edible?

I have pondered this question for a long time.

I have shied away from purchasing pomegranates because I never knew how to get the seeds out of the fruit.

But, on a recent trip to Trader Joe's there sitting before me in the refrigerator section was the cutest box of pom seeds looking like little juicy jewels - and before I knew it, that little box hopped into my cart and away we went.

So when I get home, I am left with the same dilemma - do I eat the seeds?

Anxious to try my new tasty treat, I hit the Internet and found the answer.

The choice is yours, you can either :

  • A) Chew on the seed to release the juice and  spit out the seed
  • B) Chew the entire seed and swallow

All the glory is in the juicy membrane, the seed is just an unfortunate side effect.  Now, if you need something to mindless chomp on while watching TV, this is the snack for you.  However, this seems to be a lot of effort for very little reward.

Happy Chomping!
