How to Cut Open a Pomegranate

Here’s an easy way to cut open a pomegranate. There are so many different tricks and ways to get the seeds out of the inside, but we’ve found this way is very simple and works every time without staining your fingers.

1. Place a paper towel under the pomegranate so you don’t stain the cutting board and cut the top off

2. Score the skin all the way around in quarters

3. Get a bowl of cold water

4. Let the pomegranate soak for 5 minutes

5. Under the water separate each piece and rub the seeds gently with your thumbs separating them from the membrane

6. Skim the top of the water to take off any membrane that floats to the surface

7. Drain the seeds and enjoy!
