My roommate got a gift basket that included a pomegranate, something I had never used before. I knew there were seeds inside that are super healthy but had no idea how to get to them or what to expect when this beautiful fruit was opened.
A quick Google search and Youtube video helped tremendously. I'll summarize and illustrate the process here.
1. Score the skin (exterior) of the pomegranate with a fruit knife, about 3-5 times length-wise.
After Step 1
2. Cut off the top. Some seeds will probably be exposed.
After Step 2
3. Peel away the skin, using the score lines as your guide. Do this over a container, as the seeds will start to fall away from the membrane.
4. Continue to peel and push the seeds away from the membrane until all of the seeds are removed.
Mix them in coconut yogurt (Trader Joe's or SO Delicious) or with paleo ice cream (Recipe Book)! Or, just enjoy them on their own!!
