How to Remove Pomegranate Seeds

Cut the stem end off pomegranate. Score the skin to divide it into sections. Place in bowl of cool water. Separate the sections and gently remove the seeds. Remove the white membrane and skin from the water. Drain water, retaining pomegranate seeds.

How to Select Passion Fruit

The most common variety of passion fruit found in markets is egg shaped and about 3 inches long. Choose large, heavy firm fruit with a deep purple colour. When ripe, it will be relatively light in weight. The fruit will feel "hollow" and look dimpled and wrinkled. Inside, the soft flesh will be a golden colour flecked with edible black seeds.
