Cooking Class: Working With Pomegranate
The Best Pomegranates Come From Redlands California
in my humble opinion
Cut the pomegranate into quarters.
You can cut them on a plate and not stain your cutting board.
Fill a bowl with cold water.
Using both hands, place a pomegranate quarter into the water.
Use your fingers to tickle and massage the seeds out of the shell.
You need to crack open all the little membranes that house the seeds.
The seeds will fall to the bottom of the bowl.
Use a small strainer to remove the paper-like membranes that will float to the top of the water.
Pour the remaining water and seeds into the strainer.
The seeds are ready to use at this point.
