[SOUND] Pomegranates are an amazing fruit.
00:00:04.670 --> 00:00:08.637
But, getting those seeds out
can be a little bit tough.
00:00:08.637 --> 00:00:12.337
I'm Frances Largeman-Roth, and
I'm gonna show you an easy way to do it.
00:00:12.337 --> 00:00:17.637
Slice it in half crosswise, there you go.
00:00:17.637 --> 00:00:21.387
And again, this is not only
an easy way to get the seeds out,
00:00:21.387 --> 00:00:26.207
but also you're not gonna get that
juice everywhere because it does stain.
00:00:26.207 --> 00:00:30.497
So then, into a bowl of water,
you're going to submerge the half.
00:00:30.497 --> 00:00:35.837
And then you're gonna start
to remove the white pith.
00:00:35.837 --> 00:00:39.127
00:00:39.127 --> 00:00:43.876
The white part is gonna float to the top,
the seeds are going to sink and
00:00:43.876 --> 00:00:47.095
then all you have to do
is remove the white part,
00:00:47.095 --> 00:00:50.420
throw it away,
drain your seeds and enjoy them.
00:00:50.420 --> 00:00:54.340
They really add a lot of color and
flavor to anything you add them to.
00:00:54.340 --> 00:00:58.199
