Trick or treat? How about a trick... for seeding pomegranates!

Happy Halloween!!! I remember one of my favorite things as a kid around this time of year was walking around with a piece of pomegranate, fingers and lips stained red from picking out the seeds and eating them. I thought it was hilarious because they were always in season around Halloween and it looked like my fingers and lips were covered in blood.... haha.

Here's a little trick for seeding pomegranates - no messy, sticky, stained red fingers and no yucky, bitter membranes mixed in with the yummy seeds.

Slice the pomegranate in half then take it apart and remove seeds while it is submersed in a big container of water. The juice from any seeds that pop will just go in the water instead of all of your hands and clothes, so less mess! And the seeds sink to the bottom while the white membrane floats to the top, so it's easy to separate!
