To eat a fresh pomegranate, slice off a piece of the skin on the stem end to create a flat surface (upper left); ring the blossom end to remove a "cap" of the skin and expose the interior of the fruit (upper right); score the skin along each side of the segments (lower left) and then pull the fruit apart (lower right) to expose the seeds which are then easily removed from the supporting tissue. 1
