How to Eat (and Enjoy) a Pomegranate
Eating a pomegranate takes some work
because the edible seeds are encased in an inedible white pith. The seeds are
the part you want to eat -- they have a tangy, sweet-sour flavor. You can make
juice, jellies and marinades as well. Here's the best way to get to them:
• Slice the crown end of the pomegranate off.
• Score the rind in several places around the fruit (from top to bottom).
• Break (or cut) the sections apart.
• Put the sections in a bowl of water.
• Pry the seeds out with your fingers (be careful, the juice will stain clothes
• Strain the seeds using a colander.
• The seeds can be eaten right away, stored in the refrigerator or even frozen.
