Who could have guessed that my children (the ones who are picky as can be with so darn many things) would be head-over-heels in love with pomegranates. Each year during the holidays we buy them and the kids can’t get enough of those little red “seeds.” I love them too, and LOVE to put them in salads.
The problem is that it’s time-consuming to extract those suckers. And in the process of seeding them they tend to stain stuff. They make a giant mess.
Dave jumped to action this year and somehow figured out how to seed those things lickety-split.
And the kids were fascinated.
So fascinated they made me laugh and get out the camera 🙂
Here’s how you do it:
Score the edges around the perimeter. (Don’t actually cut it in half.)
Loosen it up by stretching out the sides and edges.
Turn each side upside-down above a bowl and tap it with a wooden spoon.
Those tasty thing will just fall like rain from their “home.”
And there you will have it: nice, juicy pomegranate seeds to put in salads or eat by the spoonful if you’re one of my children 🙂
And no mess.
And a husband who does it. Can it get better than that?
