How To Seed a Pomegranate the Easy Way

Pomegranates are a unique fruit. Packed into a single globe are hundreds of tiny gem-like seeds, properly called arils (which are the actual seed plus the bubble of tart juice surrounding it). The seeds are cushioned by thick, spongy pith and then separated into distinct chambers by thin, waxy membranes. Picking one open is like going spelunking in a cavern of endless ruby-colored fruit.
