Have you ever tried to wrestle the seeds out of a pomegranate? Here’s a great tip … spank it! Holding a half pom, firmly but gingerly whack all around it with the flat side of a kitchen mallet. Watch your fingers! I’ve tried a wooden spoon before, but it didn’t offer enough heft. So, spank away and be mesmerized by the rain of crimson, jewel-like pomegranate seeds. They may scatter around the counter and floor, but the bounty is worth a little mess!
