how to: pomegranate

17/366 - pomegranate how-to.

 1. make a shallow circular cut around both the top and bottom of the fruit and remove.

2.  Around the outside of the pomegranate you should be able to feel faint ridges:  score these with a sharp knife.

3.  Pull open one section at a time.

4.  This is the stickiest, messiest part:  pry out the seeds.  If you can keep from puncturing the seed membranes, you won't get red fingers...good luck with that.  I store the seeds in a jar in the fridge.

5.  Enjoy!  I put them on green and fruit salads; you could add them to smoothies, or sprinkle them on your morning oatmeal or just eat them plain, like I did.
