Sorry if this is a duplicated thread i can't find the one i thought i started. perhaps i imagined it. ;)

Anyway I peeled and de seeded 3 pomegranates cost £6, normally, reduced to £3.

took me half an hour. put the lot in a blender and blended to a pulp.

I'm still straining it and there has to be a better way lol

Just had a though I could use by nut bag to squeeze the juice from the remaining pulp. must try that tomorrow. :)

I have a juicer i suppose ( a Jack Lalanne one ) i should try that. just a lot to clear up for 3 pomegranates.

Please do not try it on the juicer.  I tried it with Blackberries and it got stuck, causing the Auger to break http://store.samsonjuicers.com/auger---gb9001-gb9002-p72.aspx (it’s only a small piece).  I haven’t tried with Pomegranate yet though.

So, I use a small sized strainer measuring 4X3.5 inches http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/product.asp?SKU=11586104&RN=212&.  Put the blackberries in the strainer then smash gently with a pestle.  It works well.  Don’t forget to put a bowl under the strainer. The juice comes out so yummy.

I think you can try with Pomegranate as well.


;D Oooop! I just saw your last post, now we talk different of the Juicer lol. if your Juicer is a Lalanne please try.

:D

You were sooooo right. I made a load of it using Jack la lannes juicer and it was so easy. although i now have to wash the darn thing which is never great lol.

anyway tried and tested now the only way to juice pomegranates is to get all the little gems out in a glass bowl full of water and then rnse them and slowly drop then into the jack la lannes juicer. it makes quite a racket and so on but eventually calms down. the fine detail you can sort your self.

but i just held my hand over the entrance as i poured he gems in slowly using a glass jug. i got loads more than from staining etc \and soooo quick.

recommended and it tastes so good. pricey though.

makes you wonder what rubbish they put in a carton that you can but for a £1 or 2 when it cost so much to do it properly..

They probably just juice the whole, unpeeled pomegranates and filter out the skins.

the membranes amidst the fruit is not pleasant tasting
