How to remove seeds (arils) from a pomegranate

- Roll the fruit to loosen the seeds.
- Score 4 lines from top to bottom of the pomegranate to quarter the pomegranate.
- Submerge the pomegranate in a bowl of water and and pull apart the quarters.  Use your fingers to help release the seeds.
- The pith will float and the seeds will sink. Remove the pith and discard, then drain the seeds. Enjoy!
