De-seed A Pomegranate In Seconds

I love pomegranates, but hate all the time it takes to de-seed them.  Honestly, I really only bother with them when I go to visit my parents.  One of my grandmothers lives with my parents and she likes to whatever she can to be helpful, and de-seeding pomegranates is one of those things she does.  So, when I go to visit, we'll buy a bunch of pomegranates and she'll go to town de-seeding them.  I'll end up with a huge container full of pomegranate seeds that I take home with me.  I love pomegranates, so this supply usually doesn't last me more than a couple of days.  Today, I came across this amazing hack on how to de-seed a pomegranate in seconds.  I can't wait to try this out!  Check out the video:

Update: I've tried the method and it works amazingly!  In addition, I do this over a bowl of water, so all the little white membrane pieces float to the top.  I skim those pieces off the top, drain everything in a mesh colander, and I'm left with beautiful pomegranate seeds.
