How the heck do people peel these things? I am pretty sure I spent 15 minutes busting this baby open to get to the goods!
I started by cutting it in half and then just pulling the seeds out from between the membranes- throwing pom juice all over the place as I went along. I went from this:
Apparently, I am a complete goofball. I just looked up "How to Seed a Pomegranate" and found this simple set of instructions from Bon Appetit:
"To get the seeds without spattering red juice everywhere, cut the pomegranate in half and submerge it in cool water. Pry out the seeds in handfuls, and transfer them to another bowl."
That's it?!? I'll enjoy my efforts a little more and use the new trick the next time around.
Do you buy and peel pomegranates? What's your favorite way to enjoy them?
I like mine plain or as a salad topping. They remind me of my childhood since they were a special treat!
Also in the news-
Halloween is almost here! I can tell because my office has a sickening amount of candy out in every.single.corner!
