To my Jewish friends here...

I almost bought a pomegranate at Aldi's the other day. I am not quite sure how to eat one!

We're spoiled in NY. They sell the pomegranate seeds in plastic containers. Great for us lazy people. Check out this video on how to actually get the seeds out of one:

@@Inner Surfer Girl and @@Alex Brecher,

Useful video aside, any self-respecting child will somehow break open a pomegranate (mothers come in handy for this) and put its eager little face right into the fruit to extract several bits at a time.

ISG, the sweet-tart taste of the pulp is a good contrast in many whole-meal or side salad combinations.

Even for an adult, Alex, where's the fun in buying a container of seeds? You must now choose your punishment, either a refresher bar mitzvah lesson or walking the plank.

I no longer put my face in. A spoon does nicely.

Ohhhh. The pomegranate is the first thing on my list when I leave downtown today!

@@Alex Brecher

costco sells packs of the seeds.

Great when using them for a recipe.

However, completely agree with

@WLSResources/Clothing Exch

When it comes to EATING a pomegranate-

I cut mine in quarters and then extend the sides of a quarter to expose the red beauties.

That pith though! Ugh! Oy! So bitter!!!

Transliteration is a puzzlement. I've only seen "sameach," but your version works just as well.

I like your screen name.
