    Cut them in half, turn upside down and bash with a wooden spoon. All the fruit will fall out and no need for peeling or fuss!

    Maybe it's not ripe enough, the seeds seem
    awfully tight!
    Anymore suggestions?

    So glad you asked this question....I usually get a few pomegranites this time of year, and I always struggle with the peeling....

    I cut into them, too. I rub them loose with my thumb. I usually put the bowl in the sink, in case one gets a bit squirty.

    I make my parrot eat them in the shower and hose it down after he's done. [​IMG]

    I usually cut the skin until the fruit is divided in half then try and twist it so they it breaks cleanly? I don't actually eat pomegranates much lol so I'm no expert [​IMG] Just my 2 cents [​IMG]

    Cut it into quarters and the turn the quarters inside out in a bowl of water. Taking out the seeds underwater is the best way since they are heavy and sink, but the pith is light and floats.

    I cut mine in 1/2 (Out both halves face down on a towel for about 30 seconds to help with the mess). Then peel the pieces off as I go. Starting is the hardest part because im afraid seeds with explode everywhere but for the most part once you get past that point its usually pretty easy.
