Being that pomegranates are in season from September through February, I am guessing that we will be getting quite a few of them in our baskets over the next few months. I was talking with a friend on Saturday and she directed me towards some videos on YouTube where you can watch how to get the seeds out of a pomegranate without making a mess and/or staining your hands and clothes. I was intrigued and had to find out about it!!!

Cut the "crown" or top of the pomegranate off just enough to reveal the seeds.
Lightly score down the sides of the skin without cutting all the way through.

Use your hand to pop the sections apart and turn them back against themselves to allow the seeds to pull away from the skins. Work at getting the seeds off the membranes UNDER the water, which will keep you from staining your fingers and squirting that red juice everywhere.

The membranes float to the top and the seeds sink to the bottom!

Strain them in a colander and go eat them!
