Although it's easy to seed a pomegranate under water, some people, like chef Bobby Flay, believe that the water dilutes the flavor of the jewel-like seeds. To ensure maximum pomegranate flavor, here's what Flay recommends doing:
- Slice the fruit in half.
- With the back of a heavy spoon or wooden cooking utensil, carefully tap the side of the pomegranate over a bowl that's sitting in the middle of your sink. The seeds will pop out of the pomegranate.
- If necessary, slice into quarters and continue the process until you have collected all of the seeds in the bowl. Use immediately.
