Preparation, Uses, & Tips

Carefully cut through the thin outer skin, and then separate the seeds from the cream-colored, inedible membrane. The seeds can be eaten raw, sprinkled on fruit salad, strained and used as a paste in cooking, or as a condiment. In Indian cooking they are used for a tart accent. Grenadine and other thick syrups are condensed from the pulpy part of the fruit.
