When pomegranates are at their peak, we buy 5 or 6 a week. I’ve developed my own method for opening them. It doesn’t make a mess, and you won’t have to fish hundreds of seeds out of a bowl.
A few notes:
- Put a plate underneath to catch seeds.
- Use your thumbs, not your fingers (I misspoke).
- After you break open the pomegranate into halves, then quarters, just peel off the membrane to reach more seeds. You can score more of the peel if necessary.
Enjoy! We like our pomegranate straight, or in cereal. Mango and pomegranate is a great combination.
