Best Way to Cut a Pomegranate

I can't tell you how many You Tube videos I have watched to find the best way to peel a pomegranate! After months of trying different ways, I finally found the easiest and cleanest way to remove seeds from a pomegranate. I used to dread peeling pomegranates not only because it took forever but inevitably I would always mess up a shirt. I have finally mastered this skill so I hope you find this "how to" guide handy! 

First, remove the top and bottom of the pomegranate. Be careful when cutting the pomegranate because the juice of this fruit will stain almost anything it comes in contact with.
Then, score 4 sides of the pomegranate using a knife. You should cut through the red lining until you hit the pith, or white membrane, which is right beneath the red exterior. You do not cut all the way through the pomegranate.
Place the pomegranate in a large bowl of water. Break apart the pomegranate into 4 sections along where you made the cuts in the previous step. It is important to do this as much under water as possible so that the juices do not squirt all over you!
After you separate the four pieces of the pomegranate, start peeling away the membrane from the seeds. Again, this should be done under water.
The seeds will sink to the bottom and the white membrane will float to the top.
Check out the separation of the seeds and membranes!
Remove the membranes by hand, then drain the seeds in a strainer, removing any excess membrane left on the seeds.
Store in a glass bowl in the refrigerator.
That's it! You can do this in less than 5-10 minutes!
