What do I do with a pomegranate?

What does one do with 1 pomegranite? Just eat it? Never had one.

Cut it in half, beat the snot out of it with a wooden spoon, get a seed spit cup, and enjoy. I love pomegranates. They are so good but really hard to do much with other than just eat it, IMO.

According to the signs in Harris Teeter you can also soak them in water to get the seeds out, but beating the snot out of it is more fun and releases all sorts of aggression.

Wouldn't beating it like that rupture the seeds?

Doesn't seem to and it's recommended by Bobby Flay (don't diss my Bobby ). I did it to see what would happen and they really just fell out in tact. If you are just going to eat them, it doesn't hurt them. They really just fell out of the skin with no problems that I found. And it kept my fingers from turning red when I did it that way.

Come to think of it, it was less invasive that way because they just fell off the membrane rather than being pulled and popped.

Just slice thru the skin, and pick the seeds. Then eat the seeds with a spoon. I love them, can eat tons of them. They are pretty lousy this year. Haven't had any really good ones. Should get better as season goes on.

take em out and decorate a cheesecake with them.

pomegranate juice is meant to be very refreshing.

When I was a kid, I used to love eating them but after a little while, my teeth would feel all fuzzy and my tongue would start to hurt. Guess I could have a mild allergy to them as I disliked the flavour of commercial pomegranate juice and the pomegranate molasses they serve in restaurants.

First and foremost know that the juice is BAD to stain!!!!! I cut mine in quarters and sqeeze into a strainer then stir the seeds around to release more juice. I don't get eating the seeds - I wish I did. When you drink the juice you can just tell it's so good for you!!!!!

First fill a big bowl of water cut the pomegranite in quarters put a each quarter under water in bowl and pull out seeds the skin will float to the top the seeds will float to the bottom and you will not stain your hands.Eat straight up or use in pork or poultry dishes or use as a garnish or in salads.Just taste them and you will know what to do
