Pomegranates are a gorgeous fruit, chock full of fabulousness for your mind and body, its red juicy seeds shimmering in the light like living ruby teardrops.  Famously, pomegranate seeds were the temptation that Persephone succumbed to when abducted by Hades, the Lord of the Underworld.  Those few ruby red seeds tied her to the world below forever...  (Lesson: when in a fairy or god/goddess situation, never ever eat or drink anything!!!)

On a brighter note the pomegranate is the perfect fruit to celebrate the upcoming Chinese Lunar New Year festivities, its color the lucky happy red that the Chinese consider a harbinger of luck and its many seeds an apt symbol for fertility.  And while I actually really love eating pomegranate seeds, they're super yummy...but gosh darn it, I always found that getting the seeds out to be a real b*tch.  Picking them out takes forever...  But then I discovered that there is a really easy and quick way to get those pomegranate seeds out after all.  A fabulous fun method where you get to beat something up!

When buying pomegranates just remember to make sure the fruit is firm with a bright shiny red skin color.  When ready to eat just slice the pomegranate in half.

Cradle the pomegranate half in your left hand, cut side down.  Using a wooden spoon beat down...hard...on the tops and side of the fruit.  It's a fun way to beat the s*!@t out of something.  The pomegranante seeds will start falling through your fingers like magic!

Give it a half minute or so and all the seeds will be out and ready for eating!   My little girl thinks her mommy beating up on a pomegranate is hilarious so we made a video of the same to share with you:


Hope this eases the way for all you pomegranate lovers out there as much as it has for us!
