Long story short I bought a pomegranate a couple of months ago and kept it in the fridge with all good intentions. Finally, feeling guilty I cut it open last night and extracted the seeds. However, they weren't big juicy pods like I expected. They were hard seeds with just a little of the juice still inside. So #1 - did it get old and thus get more "seedy" over time (i.e., harden more)? And, #2 some people say you can suck on them and get the juice and swallow the hardened seed part as "roughage." What say ye food masters?
