How to eat a pomegranate?

Al_Pal | Oct 6, 2008 10:04 PM

Can someone tell me how I'm supposed to eat this thing? I love pomegranate, but I've never had great luck eating them. Mostly I just end up making a huge mess with the seeds and getting some sort of permanent pomegranate stain on my clothing. And I've heard of about three different "right" ways to eat one. I didn't think you were supposed to eat the flesh part, but I met someone who has. I thought the proper way was to just cut it open, scoop the seeds out, and eat them, but then I heard that you're just supposed to eat the fruity part from around the seed and then spit the seed out. Also, what is pomegranate good with? I can't think of anything (save for maybe a salad) that would go well with it.
