How to Prep a Pomegranate

When I first started finding and using pomegranates I heard and read a few various techniques for removing the seeds. The most common method I saw was cutting the pomegranate in half, taking a rolling pin, and hitting it to release the seeds. All this managed to do for me was release a few seeds and splatter a lot of red juice.

I cut the pomegranate in half through the equator, and then cut each half in quarters. Holding a 1/4 section at a time over a bowl I peel away the yellow-white pith around the various groupings/pockets of seeds. The seeds go into the bowl, and the pith into the trash.

You can store the seeds for a couple days in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Or you can freeze them.
