Pomegranates are gross and a pain in the ass to eat.

Buy the seeds from Trader Joes and put them in my salad / oatmeal.

I like my pomagranetes juiced, with a double shot of decent burbon, with a squirt of lemon and simple syrup, shaken with ice and poured into a rocks glass.

Last Saturday I was searching YouTube videos for an old grocery store commercial. There were several suggested ads below what I watched for How To Eat A Pomegranate. I watched 2 separate versions. Didn't realize this was now a thing.

I prefer to submerge my pomegranate, gently rub the berries and they float up, the pith sinks.

BTW...just occurred to me...why does every thing on earth with the word "Jerusalem" in it's name look terrifying or freakish?

That Jerusalem Artichoke looks like something out of a Stephen Gammell illustration...

I'll just stick to the way Alton Brown showed how to peel one.

Because someone on the internet is wrong! That's why.

Yep! He rarely steers you wrong.
Pomegranetes also come in juice and prepped forms, too, you know. Save yourself the trouble of replacing any white/light-colored clothing and just go that route. Once that shiat's on there, it ain't a comin' out.

I believe the classical way to eat a pomegranate is to eat six pips once a year, and then to go and spend the summer with your mom.

Eating? Yeah, you're doing it wrong. You're supposed to do what I do and make wine out of them.

I can't help with gross, but they're not a pain in the ass to eat.

Bought one of these.  http://www.seedout.com/buynow.html

Cut in half, make a couple of slits, sit it on top, smack it with a spoon. All the seeds fall out, ready to eat. TADA!

Is that before or after getting kidnapped by the lord of the underworld because he wanted to marry you?

And pomegranate? Just smash it with a hammer and crack an egg over it.

Yup. Having some with vanilla yogurt for lunch today.

Just don't eat them. They're too messy.

But if you must, pulp them and then centrifuge the seeds out.

Or something.

I knew it had to have a name!!

thanks!

looked up the official recipe for a ward eight, looks like the biggest differnce with mine is using actual pom juice, and served as a highball, while the official uses grenadine and is served as a cocktail.

Yea. How is that proper given the total lack of dietary fiber you're supposed to get from eating the seeds?

Thought so.

/spit in half, put underwater, gently run your fingers across the 'kernels'
/45 seconds and you've got everything good at the bottom and the nasty crap floating on the top.

There are easier and tastier fruits to eat...I'll wait for the seedless version to come out

the huge anti-oxident and Vitamen C load is good. That whiskey cocktail I make is great for stemming off a head cold.

but then, I juice the raw fruit when I do that. A regular Citrus reamer is fine for popping the seeds.

first stuff it with cheese, then wrap in bacon, THEN batter and fry
