How to Remove the Seeds
Slice off the ends of the pomegranate and carefully score the skin down the middle with a knife. Place the pomegranate in a large bowl of water and gently pull it apart. Under the water you can remove the sections while prying the seeds from the membranes without spraying yourself with juice. The seeds will sink to the bottom and the rinds will float to the surface. Now just skim off the membranes and drain the seeds in a colander. The seeds can then be eaten or refrigerated for up to four (4) days.
