To seed the pomegranate cut it in half or in quarters if very large. Place the pomegranate in your hand with the skin side up and seeds down. Spread your fingers with a bowl underneath so that the seeds can fall through. Beat the skin of the pomegranate with a wooden spoon until the seeds fall into a bowl. If any of the white pith drops out as well just pick it out.
