Instead of buying the packaged seeds, which are more expensive and less fresh, try this three-step method for the whole fruit. Enjoy the seeds in salads, dips, or cocktails.
Score and Peel.
Score a circle about 2 inches below the crown with a sharp paring knife. Grip the knob on top of the crown and carefully peel away the circle of skin.
You will expose 4 to 6 sections of seeds that are divided by a white membrane. Score the skin between each section, using the membrane as a guide. (The skin thickens into a slight ridge where it meets the membrane.)
