Yes I did it the other night and it is delicious.
They are sweet/bitter however I now have stains over my top and the kitchen floor had spots of red - pomegranates are yummy but made such a mess getting the pips out!
I LOVE pomegranates just to eat or in a salad!! They are great in a savoury or fruit salad! AND YES!! I also used to use a pin when I was a child,as this is how my parents(both English!!) taught me to eat the delightful little morsels of juiciness!!! I have a friend who has a tree and brings me the glorious fruit to enjoy! Also a couple of streets away is the most fabulously laden tree in someone's front yard. I have been so tempted to knock on their door and ask if I might be able to buy some, but so far I have not done so!!
Good food, you can buy them already pipped at woolies. James Oliver showed how to get them out of the fruit by cutting in half, spread fingers wide, turn fruit onto fingers and tap the top of the fruit, voila!
