Whoever Uwe Boll is. Sounds like some dirty word in hiding.

No, my fingers have never turned yellow but then again, I have nails and I'm not going to break one attempting to pry a piece of fruit open. Why take that time or chance? Beating the seeds out they don't turn red either.

I happen to be a big fan of Bobby's and considering he's not got hours to slowly pick seeds from a pomegranate, I think him beating it is just fine with me. Ever seen a room full of 4th graders beating pomegranates with wooden spoons? It's fun.

Everyone has their own methods. Yours work for you but they aren't the definitive "have to do it this way" method. I like mine, others like the water trick. It's preference.

Ah, that explains it then.

Uwe Boll: he's a Hollywood director. Bloodrayne, Postal, etc.

Well, and we're each free to proselytize for our preference. I'll do so vociferously for mine.

The Bobby Flay thing, well, if he entertains you, great. I don't want to drag the thread into an argument about him, my opinion's out there and we could have an entire thread devoted to celebrity chefs we love or hate (actually, there probably are quite a few).

Actually we couldn't. The forum frowns on the putting down of Food Network stars.

And what religion are you trying to convert me to?

proselytize \PROS-uh-luh-tyz\, intransitive verb:
1. To induce someone to convert to one's religious faith.

Too much work for a $1 item (that's what they were down to tonight). But I'll give that guy props for having that kind of time and patience.

Like Kitchenelf said watch the juice because they really stain your clothes. Pomegranate
jelly is really growing in popularity, I will be making some in january. My brother has or
had a great big tree of them and it was loaded this year, I lost out I did`nt get one piece
of fruit off that tree and alot of other people in our family was disappointed , same thing
happened to my sister and her tree. you give people permission to take some fruit then
they strip it. well I will go to the store and buy some juice.

I always cut mine into segments like an orange, dolling out a couple of segments at a time. I could make a pomegranate last for days that way when I was a kid. Sitting on the back step trying to spit the pips into the grass as I went. Ahhhh....
