2. Now that you’ve taken your precious fruit home, it’s time for the first incision.
Use a sharp knife to slice off the crown of the fruit. Use a cutting board! This is the only step that might get a tiny bit messy, so take off your wedding dress prior to slicing.
The cut should be thin, but the entire width of the fruit. You should be able to see the seeds of the pomegranate divided into sections. If you don’t see something similar to the photo above, cut a little deeper. (The first cut is the deepest, baby I know.)
3. Now score!
OK, it could get a little dangerous here too, so still keep your wedding dress off to the side.
Score the outside of the pomegranate from your top cut to the bottom of the fruit. Don’t cut all the way through the fruit, just use the knife to make sections in the pomegranate’s skin.
4. Dunk tank mode.
Fill a large bowl with cool water and keep it in the sink so the splash factor won’t matter.
Gently — GENTLY I SAID — tear open the pomegranate as you hold it submerged under the water in the bowl. The fruit should easily break off into sections.
