In the video the blogger shows how you can start cutting the pomegranate right around the crown, and gently remove the skin. Then you score vertical lines along the white lines and divide the fruit. You can then simply turn the fruit upside down and divide it, you can just use a wooden spoon to push the seeds in a bowl. That’s it, isn’t it amazing how easy this was? Have you tried this ever?
