How to de-seed a Pomegranate

De-seeding Pomegranate
Pomegranates are a staple this time of year. I just love the look of them. You can find a bowl of them sitting on my dining room table as a sign of the season. They are also great to eat. They are packed full of antioxidants and have more potassium by far than bananas. Their taste is both tangy and sweet. When you bite into them they have a juicy crunch. They are great added in to salads (check out my avocado and grapefruit salad) and sides (think rice, barley or quinoa pilafs).

The question is, how to de-seed a pomegranate. They tend to be a little knarly to extracate the seeds from the tough casing without breaking a lot of the seeds. I found a great YouTube video by Martha Stewart that makes it an easy and fun process. Check it out:
