Sounding like a philospher
One seed at a time, one seed at a time...

I like that answer! That's how I'm doing it, but it takes a long time. The whole process is very zen.

That was your pomegranate! I saw it on the bookcase outside the bathroom and wanted to take it :)

I'm new to pomegranates, and I was just thinking it would be a nice activity to share with a friend. :)

I'm trying to eat it and keep typing -- my mouse has some pom-debris on it now though...

My first thought on seeing the picture: "OMG COW BRAINS"

And I don't know the best way. I usually go for the "throw a handful in the mouth and be careful" method.

It does look gory, doesn't it? Especially when I first cut into one and the red juice comes out, I feel like I killed it.

OMG go to Whole Foods and buy a pomegranate, and prepare for your entire life to be changed!! I just had my first one yesterday and I'm obsessed.

That is quite possibly the most disgusting thing I have ever seen. I will now vomit the next time daveman692 gives me pomogranite juice before diving.

This picture immediately reminded me of a picture I once saw of an ovarian cyst that had hair and teeth in it. I used to live with medical students.

you are supposed to BUY it pre-peeled silly!
They sell it pre-peeled in a plastic container! It is $8.00 but it's worth the money so you can actually enjoy it by the spoonful! MMMM MMMM good.

It's not so easy to buy these pomegranate in Sweden. Some shops that are selling exotic fruit can have it.

Joking now: Is it your computer who shall eat it :-), I see the keyboard.
When I in the morning at work check out the computer labs it seems that the computers have been eating fruit, coffee or candies the last night. There are coffee cups, and half eaten apples, candy paper and soft drink bottles, it looked like the had a party he, he :) Just joking about this.

I used the slice-with-plastic-knife-from-kitchen approach as well. But you can just tear them apart when they're already in halves. My last two pomegranates took an entire week to eat (during the work day).

Pomegranates need a national holiday or something. Make it coincide with national masochism week for bonus points.

It is nice berry but it is a teeth killer. I can not eat more then one or half of it in time.

I think that best way it is clear away a rind (you can clear away not all rind) and divide fruit into clusters. After that can eat all berries from clusters without problems.
Not remember that the pomegranate is painted and your fingers will be painted to black color.

P.S. I'm not think that pomegranate is so delicious. May be I have two boxes of pomegranates each autumn ;)

the best way is naked in a bathtub. not being sexy, just telling the truth. nothing to stain.

or what's really good is to finely chop a couple of jalepenos and a red onion and add that to a couple pomegranates worth of seeds. add a little lemon juice and sprinkle with sugar. eat with tortilla chips or pita bread. hot dang!

contrary to popular belief, a pomegranate is ripe when it shows cracks. de-seed under softly running water to avoid staining.

did you know i own 1/4 of a pomegranate farm outside of fresno?

You're part pomegranate-farmer? That's just one more reason why you're a dreamboat!

ppl, there's no need to eat it during the whole week or drink its unnatural juice... just eat it like we eat it in the "exotic" countries :)

and one recipe, good for the girls' diets:
1. grate the beetroot (hope it's not an exotic veg in your countries)
2. add a couple of handfuls (of the seeds, of course)
3. add some mayonnaise
4. mix it (with a spoon, not a mixer)
5. eat it!!! YUMMY!
6. throw out of the window your "sunday roast"

Easy-peasy!
