How to peel a pomegranate


Pomegranates can be tricky blighters, but not when you have the knack!

1. Score the skin of the pomegranate from top to bottom, with a sharp knife.
2. Submerge the fruit in a bowl of cold water.
3. Peel it underwater, then pull apart the seeds.
4. The skin and pith will float to the top so they're easily discarded, and the seeds will all sink.
5. Drain and enjoy!

And once you've done that, why not try some delicious Pork Tenderloin with Black Pepper and Pomegranate Molasses?

Pomegranates are one of my favorite things. I think of them as a winter treat: the red/burgundy seeds are like gems!

Yes, they are beautiful. To tell the truth, I took the photo because they were so pretty and then thought up an excuse to blog about them!
