KC the G-Free Foodie shares the best way to open, clean and eat a pomegranate with you!

Here's the easiest way to get the seeds (they're actually called arils - they contain the pomegranate seed and the juice of the fruit) out of a pomegranate for eating.

1. Lay the pomegranate on it's side, and cut directly through the center.

2. Hold the pomegranate half, cut side down, over a large bowl.

3. Smack the top of the pomegranate with a large spoon (I use a wooden one) so the arils fall into the bowl. Rotate the pomegranate half so you can remove all the arils.

4. Repeat with the other half of the pomegranate, then throw out the rind and enjoy the fruits of your labor!
