Oooh yes - many a happy hour sat picking the seeds out with a needle/cocktail stick as a child. Can't wait until dd is old enough - should keep her quiet for ages smile

I cut mine into quarters and pick out the seeds. Avoid the pith, it's v.bitter!

cut in half

bash the skin with back of wooden spoon, over big bowl

eat

oh and apparently you can eat the skin bits - just shred them v finely and add to end of say stirfried veg - they have even more antioxidants than the seeds!

Yes, the seeds are edible. It would take hours to eat otherwise.

Used to eat mine with a pin!

Now I cut them up into quarters and turn them inside out. A bit less fiddly!!!!

Dh was just instructing me in how to cut up a pomegranate - he's from Azerbaijan, says it's part of his culture and he was very strict about it.

He says: cut off the sticky out bit and then make two cuts around the pomegranate from the cut off section (quartering it) but being careful to only cut through the skin, not the seeds. Then you can pull it apart into four sections, supposedly without spilling any juice.

Do what bundle does - makes nice whacking sound and out come all the lovely seeds with the pip bit inside. Use them lots to add to salads or in a cous cous so Moroccan type vibe smile. Once saw someone add to a risotto but don't think it would work.
