How To: Open a Pomegranate

'Tis the season for pomegranates. I will show you how to open one without a "bleeding" mess.

You will need:
1. A large bowl
2. A small bowl (Optional. I use it for the discarded outer skins.)
3. A cutting board
4. A knife
5. A spoon
6. Pomegranates

Step 1: Identify the bottom aspect of the fruit.

Step 2: Cut off the bottom.

Step 3: With the aid of the spoon and knife peel off as much of the the skin and white pith as you can exposing the kernels on this bottom portion of the pomegranate.

Step 4: You will notice that the seeds are sectioned off much like an orange.  Score the skin with the knife along these sections.

Step 5: If you pull apart at these sections with your fingers it will open up nicely. Note: You can do this step holding this aspect of the pomegranate face down into a large bowl to prevent the spraying of the juice onto yourself.

Step 6: You can either eat these as is or proceed to remove each seed by peeling off the outer skins.

Step 7: Enjoy!
