Pomegranate Pointer

Psst... wanna know a secret? Pomegranates are actually super simple to seed. Really. If you're avoiding buying fresh pomegranates that are in abundance right now because you envision a lot of work for very little reward, fear not. No need to spend hours with an ice pick digging out the stubborn seeds, only to wind up with a kitchen resembling a crime scene from all the vibrant red juice. Use my method, and you'll have nuggets of pomegranate joy within minutes - and a clean kitchen to boot!

Here's the secret: Quarter the pomegranate, and then "crumble" the wedges under water in a bowl. That's it. The seeds will sink to the bottom, and the flesh and peel will float to the top. Strain the water, and voila! Perfect pomegranate seeds every single time.

Wasn't that easy?!
