Seeding pomegranates can be a messy chore. Follow the numbers and you’ll learn how to keep the seeds intact with no stained fingers or sticky juice.

1 Using a paring knife, cut around the crown (calyx) of the pomegranate.

2 Angle the knife blade so that when you remove the crown, a cone-shaped piece comes out.

3 Slice off stem end, being careful not to go too deep; you don’t want to cut the seeds.

4 Look for the naturally occurring vertical ridges on the skin, and lightly score at each ridge.

5 Break open the pomegranate at each scored section (like you’re segmenting an orange).

6 Peel off the outer skin and membrane and gently break the seeds from the pomegranate.
