Most people don't know how to eat a fresh pomegranate, so don't be too hard on yourself if you answered "no". Pomegranates have gained immense popularity in the past decade or so in the United States. Pomegranate juice, smoothies, yogurts, and ice cream have become a commonplace in America. With that being said, most people still don't know how to eat a fresh pom.
My son is a pomegranate fanatic and always had been. Years of practice have made me a skilled pomegranate de-seeder -- I could probably do it in my sleep. It's not that the task is difficult or requires some sort of special skill, you just need to know what you are doing. Imagine never seeing what the inside of a pom looks like and then cutting it open. You would likely be a little confused as to what to eat, how to eat it, and what to dispose of.
I have created a very simple pom de-seeding tutorial that features step-by-step pictures to help guide you on your first pom de-seeding journey. So many people have written me with gratitude for publishing it and I am glad to help. Pomegranates are healthy and tasty -- I want everyone to join the pom bandwagon!
