pomegranates that are round, plump and heavy for their size.
pomegranates that have cuts and bruises.
Seasonality: Fall through early winter
Store pomegranates up to a month in a cool, dry place or refrigerate up to two months. Refrigerate seeds in an airtight container up to 5 days.
Cutting a pomegranate can get messy and stain clothes, so wear an apron or an old shirt. First, fill a large bowl with water. Slice off the top, then cut a slit through the skin of the pomegranate. Tear the fruit open with slit facing away from you. Rip the fruit into chunks under water and remove arils (seeds). The seeds sink, and the white membrane floats. Pour off the membranes so the seeds remain.
