Here's a video of a guy deseeding a pomegranate.
Skip to 2:48 for the magic.
I have to admit, I never knew this.
I will also admit I never buy them because I tend to end up smashing 1/2 the seeds trying to pick them out. I think that is going to change.

The last one I purchased was delicious. But it was so easy to take the seeds out. Probably took less than his whacking around. I just scarred it with a sharp knife, pulled it apart in quarters, bent the skin and they all just loosened up and were easy to tap into a bowl.

The real trick was not the smacking with the wooden spoon, which could be therapeutic I admit, but the stretching that he did just before he started smacking. That's what I do without all the smacking and it works great.

OK, so the seeds (and surrounding pulp) are separated from the skin and the dividing membranes. How does one separate the edible pulp from the seed?

Some people eat the seed kernel, others don't. I usually don't and just separate out the kernel with my teeth. Some people, me included sometimes, will pop a whole bunch in their mouth crunch down for the juice and then spit out the seeds in a ball of seeds.

Be careful if you do eat a lot of pomegranate seed kernels as that's a lot of roughage and it does take effect ;-)

I eat the seeds. They are kind of soft and not that bad.
