How to seed a pomegranate
Pomegranates always appear just as gray skies and dark afternoons become routine again during the chilly months here in the Northwest, offering a rosy glow and a welcome sweet-tart burst of brightness during a season of root vegetables and sturdy greens.
Crisp, tart, beautiful.
Breaking into them needn't require ruining your shirt. Try this method to get at those plump, juicy seeds and you'll be ready to make any number of pomegranate recipes like:
- Satsuma and Pomegranate Salsa
- Barley and Wild Rice Pilaf with Pomegranate Seeds
- Pomegranate Plum Reduction Sauce (to enjoy atop Whole Spice Crusted Moroccan Chicken, of course!)
- Pan-roasted Pancetta Wrapped Prawns with Pomegranate-Wasabi Reduction (ooh-la-la!)
Of course, you can always just eat them atop yogurt, add to a glass of bubbly for color and a hint of sweetness, or just spoon 'em up plain. After all, you earned them! Perhaps the challenge and mystery of breaking open a pomegranate is what launched them into lore and legend.
