How to open a pomegranate.*

Let’s get the serious business out of the way.

My apologies if the following video blog (I just can’t use the word vlog with a straight face.) embarrasses Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi. They visited the Chatelaine kitchen several weeks ago and while making a salad, opened a pomegranate in a blink or two of an eye. With a few deft smacks of a wooden spoon Tamimi emptied the pomegranate and my world was rocked. Not to put an ûber-dramatic spin on things….but WOW. I still can’t believe how much time I used to waste fighting with this fruit.

Please note that where they are deft at opening a pomegranate I am … not. So, excuse this pomegranate amateur and enjoy the show.

* I wanted to call this post Oops, I did it again in reference to making a 2nd video blog when I’d vowed never to do it again, but then I remembered not everyone shares my appreciation for humorous play on musical themes, as my son regularly informs me.
