Fall! =)

Oh my goodness! Fall is my favorite season and it is also the time of my favorite fruit! Yep. You guessed it! Pomegranates! The only problem with these amazingly delicious fruits is having to cut them... What a pain! Well, here is a step by step way to help you cut into this fruit! Be careful though! They can stain anything! :)

First: Cut the 'crown' and the bottom off of the fruit
Then, take the knife and push it in to the pomegranate. Just enough to get through the skin to the white part.
Score it into 4 different sections
Then, in a bowl of cold water, pull the fruit into four sections

Then, trying to keep the fruit under the water (to contain the juice) remove the seeds from the skin. The seeds will sink to the bottom and the skin will float
Take the pieces of skin out the best you can
Then dump the seeds into a strainer then put them into whatever container you want!
Then, violĂ ! You have successfully cut and de-seeded a pomegranate! Eat them with ice cream, pies, tarts or just by spoonfuls! =)
