First off, a disclaimer. I got a Smart phone and decided to try to use the camera on it for this post. As you can see my camera phone skills are sadly lacking and these pictures are a bit fuzzy. Sorry!
Pomegranates are one of those Winter fruits that are fun but you can't quite figure out how to get those juicy little seeds (arils) out without making your hands stained red. I read about a method that will get the little ruby red gems out whole without getting your fingers dirty and thought I would give it a try.
Start by cutting the fruit in half.
Turn the fruit upside down (cut-side over a bowl) and hit the opposite side repeatedly with a wooden spoon. The little juicy seeds will come flying out! There is a bit of juice splatter so it would be wise not to wear anything white while doing this!
As you can see you will have an empty pomegranate shell...
and a full bowl of seeds ready to eat!
