  • Please don't cut a pomegranate like that. It's incredible wasteful, messy, and you end up with ruined and broken seeds and juices EVERYWHERE. Just take a paring knife and slice off a thin bit of the bottom skin, then turn the pom over, angle the knife at about 45 degrees, and cut around the top stem, cutting that out. Once you've done that, score the skin along the ridges (the natural separation of the pom) and then with both thumbs at the top, pull it apart. You'll get several chunks. From there, gently use your thumbs to brush/knock out the seeds into a bowl, being careful not to get the white parts in there because those are bitter and nasty. This method insures you get ALL of the seeds (not brown, mushed, or pure white ones) and almost NONE of them will be broken. Once you're done, quickly rinse them and drain them in the skin (optional) to get rid of any extra floating white pieces. It takes a little bit of time, but you aren't being wasteful, and this method allows storage of the pom seeds in the fridge in a container for about a week. (if they last that long!)
