This is something that routinely irks me. And you too if you eat these singularly awesome pieces of fruit! The solution is unbelievably simple.
- Look for the roundest, deepest red pomegranates you can find.
- Rinse it in water, as usual, and cut an X in the top down to about halfway down the fruit.
- Set the pomegranate in a large bowl of water, and using your thumbs pry the peel apart from the center of the X outward.
- Keeping the fuit submerged, use your fingertips to gently brush away the seeds from the white membrane. These seeds will sink to the bottom of the bowl and the resulting empty membrane will float.
- Strain and enjoy!
