How to properly germinate Canary Island Seeds CIDPs

Hello all,
I am a young guy in college, huge fan of the CIDP's and our 2 monsters were trimmed and I saved the dates on the bushel.

They are really ripe and were about 1 week away from dropping so I decided to let them ripe some more on the vine.

I have had the bushels inside a 55 gallon drum soaking in water which is changed every other day, for the past 4 days.

My question is that I have seen posts on various websites that say to remove the flesh, but It seems like every time I peel the flesh off I take out a vein that runs down the center of the seed which leaves it looking funny (almost like a de-veined shrimp.

Am I doing this correctly or should I just throw the orange seeds in a bucket after soaking for a week or so?

Any help would be great!!!!
