It’s that time of year when the luscious pomegranate comes into markets….and at the risk of sounding like a grocery store ad, SuperFresh on 41st Street has the red orbs priced at 2 for $5.oo! That’s a pretty good price, ‘cuz the little devils can be pricey.
OK, Pomegranate 101. Lots of people don’t know how to crack them and get the seeds out(which you just eat whole)….here’ the drill.

1. Fill a large bowl with cold water.
2. With the Pom underwater, score the skin all the way around with a knife, just deep enough to get through, maybe 1/4 inch or less.
3. Pull it open. Now with your finger and still underwater(this is important, because the juice really does stain), separate the seeds from the white pith…the pith floats to the top as you see, and the seeds sink to the bottom. Carefully pour off the water and pith, and you have yourself a lovely supply of super healthy pomegranate seeds to eat just as they are, sprinkle over cereal or salads or desserts, or even better, make pomtinis.
Have a great weekend all….
