Pomegranates rank among some of my favorite fruits but they aren’t as easy to eat as, say, a strawberry that you can simply pop in your mouth after de-greening.
In order to enjoy the deliciousness of a pomegranate, here is a simple way to get the seeds out.
You’ll want to make about five or six cuts into the pomegranate. I didn’t pay attention like I should have, but if you are really cautious, your slices will go inbetween the natural sections of the pomegranate so that less seeds are sliced in the process.
After the pomegranate has soaked for the allotted time, get your hands in there (two hands if you aren’t trying to take pictures of the process) and start pulling apart the sections that you scored earlier.
As you do this, you’ll be left with a great science experiment to teach your toddlers. The heavy pomegranate seeds have sunk to the bottom while the lighter, flimsy pith and peel have floated to the top.
