How to Cut Open a Pomegranate

A vendor from Two Girls Farm at the Old Oakland Farmers Market demonstrated an easy way to open up a pomegranate. Here's how you do it in four quick steps:

 

1. Cut around the top of the pomegranate,
slicing skin-deep, as if you are 
creating a Jack O’Lantern lid

2. Remove the lid. 

3. Slice skin-deep down each of 
five membranes that appear in the 
pomegranate in the shape of a star.

4. Gently pry the pomegranate apart.
It will fan out into sections and the
seeds will easily pop out.
