How to juice Pomegranate without a juicer !
Juicing by polythene bags :
its the Cheapest way to juice your pomegranate. you will need
Fill about 30% of your polythene bag with your pomegranate and try to get as much air out as you can. I personally roll it around and I think that does a pretty good job. See?
Then I use flat side of a glass or orange juicer like in this picture to make the juice. Lay it flat. I use the flat side of the orange juicer because it gives me good hand control. Oh, you can see I didn’t get all the air out so I’m pretty lucky that that one didn’t pop :).
Okay, once it looks like it’s pretty juicy in there, I take a corner and I snip it off. Be careful not to drink that little plastic, put it aside. Collect your yummy pomegranate juice.

And then, we take a colander and strain that. You want to take your hands or a spoon and just kind of push and we move that around there to really squeeze out all of the juice.
