To release the seeds from a pomegranate, first cut off the blossom end of the fruit without piercing the seeds. Using a sharp knife, lightly score the skin into quarters. Holding the pomegranate over a bowl, break the pomegranate open on the score lines. Bend back the rind, peel off the cream-coloured membrane and gently push the seeds into the bowl.
Pomegranate seeds may be refrigerated for up to two days or frozen for up to three months.
