Pomegranate seeds add a nice touch to the tropical fruit topping. To minimize the mess of seeding a pomegranate, follow these simple instructions. First, cut off the crown and score the fruit into quarters. Soak the fruit in a large bowl of cold water for 5 minutes. Holding the fruit underwater, break the scored sections apart with your fingers. Then separate the seed clusters from the skin and membranes. Discard the skin and the membranes; dry the seeds on paper towels.
