Cutting open pomegranates can be hard, frustrating, and messy. If you like them a lot, it's important to get an idea of how to open them up with ease.
First, take a knife and make a shallow cut along the circumference of the pomegranate and carefully pull it apart. Each half of the pomegranate will have two separate sections of seeds, so take your knife and split them apart. All that's left to do is pull the seeds out. This should be easy, since many of them will fall out on their own.
