November is National Pomegranate Month

Pomegranates are a great fruit to add to a holiday meal. I especially like to add them to salads because not only do they lend a sweetness but also a nice nutty flavor. But these poor fruits are very neglected because they are so messy. Here is a great solution to the pomegranate dilemma.

Fill a large bowl 3/4 of the way with warm water. Cut the pomegranate into fourths. Submerge the pomegranate in the water and break the seeds(arils) from the surrounding pulp.

The arils will sink tot he bottom and the pulp will float to the top.

Then all you have to do is remove the pulp that is floating at the top and collect the arils at the bottom. The best part is your hands will not be stained red and you will have plenty of pomegranate seeds to enjoy!
