A couple of years ago, when all the people I knew in Jerusalem were eating pomegranates like it was their first time, all the facebook statuses seemed to be comments likening their kitchens to battlegrounds. I kept thinking, “Why are you getting juice everywhere? How could you possibly be cutting this thing in such a way that you’ve ruined two shirts, a cutting board and lost half of your fruit in the process?” And obviously, “Why is this your facebook status?”
This year, the pomegranate season in Jerusalem felt like it came and left as fast as Birthright. But in glorious North America, you don’t have to shop seasonally. So I thought it would be a perfect occasion to quickly post one method of properly de-seeding a pomegranate so that I won’t ever have to read any more inane facebook statuses about pomegranates. And to help you, of course.
