Nope, it doesn’t involve a wooden spoon or a bowl of water. My method involves a paring knife and the patience to wait until I pop it open.

1. Cut off the flowering end of the pomegranate with a paring knife.
2. Following the natural ridges of the pomegranate, score the fruit in 4-5 places from top to bottom.
3. Break open with your hands at the flowering end.
4. Eat like no one is watching.
