I use Lightroom and I just slide the saturation slider down all the way. There are other ways to get there, but this is my method. Then I adjust my contrast, brightness, blacks, exposure, etc... then I slide the saturation slider back. You can use the same process with ACR in Photoshop.
Maybe someday, if I get the energy, I'll take some screen shots and make a tutorial for those who are just learning. But really, it's not difficult and can make a big difference in your final image.
**** OK, my beloved, who is my Photoshop guru asked "What's ACR?". I thought it was a given, but then he's not a photographer. Adobe Camera Raw. It's that window that pops open in Photoshop when you open a RAW file. In older versions of PS you have to download the plug-in.
