Openning a pomegranate with a spoon
A really popular way to open a pomegranate is using a spoon!
A lot of people use this method, because it is very easy. It involves using a wooden spoon to open a pomegranate.
First of all you have to cut the fruit in the half. After that, hold it above a bowl with the seed side facing down (towards the bowl).
Next, you have to hit the pomegranate skin with the back of the spoon until all the seeds have fallen in the bowl.
A useful tip is to fill the half bowl with water, because the seeds are going to sink to the bottom of the bowl but the pieces of the pith are going to float to the top.
This is a very easy way to separate the seeds.
Finally rinse and strain the seeds of the pomegranate to remove the unwanted pith remnants and the arils are ready to enjoy!
