Do the same for the bottom. Not every part of the skin has to be removed.
If you look at the top of a pomegranate, you'll see that there are distinct sections seperated by a thin white film of skin. Cut through the skin at each of these sections.
Next, grab a section and pull it apart. It's now ready to eat!
You can either softy break off the ariels (doing such under running water makes it a little bit faster!) or eat it straight off of the rind. I do it this way, but my dog has a harder time with it. All in all, this is a quick way to get to the juicy good bits, without being messy!
