With pomegranates now in season and the abundance of fruit I’m getting from our tree, I’ve been scratching my head and fighting off stains trying to figure out the best way to extract those precious juicy seeds.

Luckily, I stumbled upon this video over at The Kitchn that demos a sturdy looking technique.  I hope it saves my white walls and t-shirts!

Any takers?

Update: The technique works great!!  Not a single drop of juice wasted, no splatters, no red stained fingers… and I have a clean cutting board and walls to boot!
