    What is the best way to peel a Pomegranate?

    Tis the season, but what is the best way to get at the ruby red seeds?

    I use the 'dive in head first' technique. I cannot say it's the tidy[ist] but I grab all the pomegranates I need.

    You just get a knife, aim for a sharp large one since pomegranates are quite big. Then slice in the middle. Afterwards, cut the sections of fruit and then pick them out by hand.

    Like I said, not the easiest option but it works for me!

    I wish there were some awesome way of doing this. I love pomegranates, but they can be laborious!

    I tend to make a circular cut at the top, around the spikey bit, to pull out the thick middle bit. That makes the whole thing easier to crack open then, then it's a case of picking out the seeds into a bowl (so I can eat them properly).

    My mum says that if you cut it in half, then bang the back of the halves with a spoon, the seeds loosen and fall out. I gave it a go and it didn't quite work for me. Maybe I was doing it wrong!
