Despite its deliciousness, the pomegranate is one of the hardest fruits to eat. Once you cut it open, the seeds are stuck behind a bitter-tasting white membrane, and trying to pull them out with your fingers just results in a huge mess.
Just cut the fruit in half, place it flat in your hand with the cut side down, and hit it with a sturdy utensil like a spatula or wooden spoon until the seeds fall out. Check out Foodbeast's video to see how it's done.
Granted, the bowl of water method is probably a little cleaner, but this looks like a lot more fun. Got any other tricks? Share them with us in the comments below.
