Katie Sullivan Morford has found a cool way to crack a pomegranate and neatly extract its highly nutritious seeds:
Set a large bowl in the kitchen sink and fill it with water. Take a sturdy, sharp knife and cut an X about two inches into the top of the pomegranate. Immerse the pomegranate in the bowl of water, wedge your thumbs into the fruit and crack it open into several chunks. Use your thumbs to loosen the seeds from the pith. The seeds will sink to the bottom and the pith and skin will float to the top.
