How to Eat a Pomegranate

Note: Pomegranate juice easily stains surfaces so wear old clothing and use a plastic cutting board.

1. Slice off the pomegranate's stem.

2. Use a knife to score the pomegranate's rind 6 or more times.

3. Place the pomegranate in a bowl of cold water.

4. Pull the fruit apart along the scored lines.

5. Work underwater, loosening the arils from the white membrane.

6. Use a strainer to skim any bits of membrane from the top of the water, then use it to drain the seeds.

7. The seeds are ready to eat. Enjoy!
