How to seed a pome­gran­ate; our fave cook­books; and cute co­coa top­pers

JUST WANT TO GET IT DONE

If you’re af­ter the fastest method (not to men­tion a great way to re­lieve stress), cut the pome­gran­ate in half cross­wise. Then hold one of the halves over a large bowl, seeds-side down, and give the half a good whack with a wooden spoon. The seeds will fall through your fin­gers into the bowl. Re­peat with the other half.

TO­TAL TIME: 1 minute (plus cleanup!)

DON’T WANT TO MAKE A MESS

Are you the tidy type? Use a par­ing knife to score the pome­gran­ate’s skin, then sub­merge the pome­gran­ate in a large bowl of cold wa­ter. Hold­ing the pome­gran­ate un­der the wa­ter, pull it apart and loosen the seeds with your fin­gers. The seeds will sink to the bot­tom, and the pulp will float to the top. Just skim the stuff on the sur­face, then drain the seeds in a colan­der.

TO­TAL TIME: 2 min­utes (no cleanup!)
