I agree with the other cook on how to peel using water. Pomegranate arils are a great addition to many cold dishes such as salad. It would probably be a great addition to a Tuscan kale salad. You can even find pomegranate vinegar to make a great dressing. I love to add it to my cereal in the morning. By the way, pomegranates store whole for more than a month. After removing the arils, they maybe dried with a paper towel and stored in a paper towel lined bowl covered with plastic wrap for several days.

I cut the pomegranate crosswise and beat the skin side with the back of a spoon and they fall right out. You have to separate the white part from the anrils I also use pomegranate molasses It is Turkish. Has a nice tart flavor.
