Some people find deseeding pomegranates quite tricky what with all the pith, but if you take your time and are methodical it should be fine. Some suggest bashing them with a wooden spoon to get the seeds out, but I really don’t get this. I have tried it and I cant say it made any difference, other than being messier and totally ruining the zen-like femininity of the moment. And I’m not sure why the spoon has to be wooden.
Now I don’t mean to get all weird, but for me there is something incredibly feminine and slightly erotic about deseeding pomegranates. Pomegranates have such a resonance with femininity through culture and mythology, representing fertility and a certain element of temptation. I’m sure there are some interpretations of the Garden of Eden where the fruit is a pomegranate, and of course there is Persephone in the Underworld. Somehow when deseeding pomegranates I feel incredibly calm, and feminine. I’m sure this all makes me very strange, maybe I’ve just been single for too long.
