How to Perfectly Slice a Pomegranate ?
It took several trials until I found this easy way to slice the pomegranate with all the arils intact and without spilling the precious juices over board.Cutting down the middle like an orange isn't as stainless as the following method that is more clean and elegant procedure to slice up the piece of heaven.
1.Cut the top section with a sharp knife(use a smaller fruit knife if you have one)
2.Observe the ridges that separate the compartments of the seeds.Make a cut along the white ridges all the way from top to bottom.
3.Slowly put apart the sections of the fruit to what appears like a flower.
Now its much easier to separate the arils from the inedible white pith.
I feast on these with a dollop of fat-free Greek yogurt(Chobani or Okios)
