To extract the arils from the pomegranate, cut off the top. You really just want to cut off the knob. Be careful not to knick any of the arils. Then, cut four shallow slits on the pomegranate’s skin, being careful once again not to cut too deep so as not to damage the arils. Place the pomegranate in a large bowl of water and break it up into four sections. Still submerged, use your fingers to separate the arils from the membrane. The membrane should float to the top while the arils sink to the bottom. That’s it! You’ve successfully de-arilized a pomegranate!
