The Q&A Archives: Drying Pomegranates At Home

Question: Any suggestions for drying pomegranates at home to use for decorating?

Answer: Pomegranates have very little moisture inside. Couple that with a characteristically thin skin, and you should be able to air-dry your fruit. If the fruit is very large, you might consider cutting it in half to speed the drying process. Hang the fruits up in a warm, dry area, or cut them in half and place in a covered container of silica gel. The silica will draw the moisture out of all the nooks and crannies. When the silica turn color, dry it out and use it over again.

Good luck with your project!
