And if you have never had them before, you don't know that the pretty red seeds have kind of bitter hard bits in the middle. Don't crunch down on them too much, and swallow or spit, your choice.

Totally worth the effort. Even Greek mythology contains praise for the pamogranite.

I love it, best for me is beating ;) those seeds over warm roast lamb that has been shredded on a plate and then scattered with some torn mint leaves. Its DH's favourite way to eat roast lamb and I've spouted off about it several times here before

How to eat a Pomegranate..

Cut off the crown(top with the stem) and discard.

Slice the rind part the way through and turn upside down in a bowl of cold water. Allow it to soak for 10 to 15 minutes. The seeds should come out easily and sink to the bottom of the bowl. Strain all the rind and membrane parts off the top and discard. You will be left with the wonderful seeds/juice sacks. Don't worry about the little hard seed, it's a good source of fiber.

Making juice from one would be tough since it would yield very little amount. Eating it is the best part. Actually we used to grab them by the handfuls and shove them into our mouths as kids . In India they were pretty abundant and they almost glistened like little gem stones. So pretty and delish.

We used it to garnish desserts like rice pudding. The crunchy texture went very well with the smooth texture of the rice pudding.

I don't have the patience for the water thing. I also don't like removing the seeds all at one time. I prefer them to just come out as I eat them, when I'm ready.

go to pomwonderful.com for some ideas other than just cracking it open and eating it.
