Here is a short video on how to open pomegranates. I know there are many ways out there, this one, I have found, is the most straight forward, clean and simple way of doing so.
**I want to make a correction, I called the seeds aprills, when they are actually arils.
Pomegranates are these wonderful exotic fruits from California or beyond. I actually had an experience last Thanksgiving in Los Angeles, where a friend and I harvested fresh pomegranates off a tree, and they were amazing! The photo above was taken on said trip and one of the fruits we picked and ate.
They are also only seasonally available roughly October – January, depending on weather, crop quality, etc.
