How To Get Into A Pomegranate

“To easily extract seeds from a pomegranate, cut the crown end of a pomegranate. With a knife, score skin from end to end in six places. Fill a large bowl with cold water. Holding fruit underwater, gently break into sections along lines. Massage to free the seeds. Seeds will sink while membranes will float to the top. Scoop membranes out. Strain seeds and pat dry.”
