Removing the tough skin from a pumpkin can be really difficult and time-consuming. However, it doesn't have to be. We have a simple kitchen hack that can make your life much easier. Use a microwave!

First of all, poke the pumpkin all over with the tines of a fork. Then, place it in a microwave-safe bowl, and microwave for 3 minutes. Your pumpkin is ready for peeling. Use a knife or peeler to get rid of the skin. Peeling will be much easier as the skin practically falls off in large strips.

If you aren't sure how to open a pomegranate, here is a simple tutorial. All you will need is a sharp knife and cool water. Score the skin of your pomegranate along the ridges, using a knife. Be careful and don’t cut too deeply. It is important not to cut into the seeds. Then hold your pomegranate over the bowl and break it into pieces.

Place the pomegranate pieces into the water to pop the seeds off. Water prevents any pomegranate juice from staining your clothes and everything around.

Preparing meals at home can be a wonderful experience. These fruit and veggie hacks will make cutting them, peeling them and, finally eating them so much easier.
