Seed a Pomegranate

To remove pomegranate seeds from the pomegranate, cut the large red fruit in half. Using the back of a knife or a large spoon, tap the rounded side of each half; the seeds will pop out from the cut edge. Squeeze the empty halves to remove the pomegranate juice and discard shell.
