POM Wonderful Pomegranate Jelly

My June/July Taste of Home issue arrived, and I couldn't wait to make one of the recipes I saw: Pomegranate Jelly!

I thought the POM Wonderful pomegranate sorbet I made was pretty tasty.

My husband LOVES POM Wonderful pomegranate juice in his iced tea (especially if I brew a raspberry tea)!

But, this Pomegranate Jelly is, by far, MY favorite use of POM Wonderful's pomegranate juice!

And, sooo easy! No canning involved!

Well, the original recipe called for canning...but, I made freezer jam... easy peasy!

There's something so beautifully satisfying about a row of freshly filled canning jars (or plastic freezer jam jars)! ;-)





Ok, here's the recipe!

POMEGRANATE JELLY

3-1/2 cups POM Wonderful pomegranate juice
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1 pkg (1-3/4 oz) powdered fruit pectin
5 cups sugar

In a dutch oven, combine POM Wonderful pomegranate juice, lemon juice, and pectin. Bring to a full rolling boil over high heat, stirring constantly. Stir in sugar; return to a full rolling boil. Boil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly.

Remove from the heat; skim off foam. Ladle hot liquid into clean freezer containers and cool to room temperature.

Let stand for 24 hours. Refrigerate for up to 3 weeks or freeze up to 12 months.





Now, to get the full delicious effect of your homemade pomegranate jelly, you MUST bake up a loaf of this fantastic Amish White Bread.

While the bread is slightly warm, slather with plenty of fresh butter and your delicious homemade jelly. Take a bite.

Try not to gasp and drool.

That'll make a very sticky mess.

Now (after you've polished off another slice), get super excited over how easy it was to make pomegranate jelly and think of all of the possibilities! POM Wonderful also makes other delicious 100% juices that could easily be swapped out in this recipe.

How about POM Wonderful blueberry juice?! Or mango? Or cherry?? Oh...I hope freezer jars are still in stock! :-D

Recommend: Oh yummy, YES!

Many thanks to POM Wonderful for sending me a pomegranate care package to try out some summery recipes!

Thanks a bunch for the recipe, I just made a batch with great success. The last recipe I used was a big fat fail.

Janet,

I'm so glad! This fall, I tried to make a sugar free berry jelly, using apple juice concentrate as the sweetener. Turned out pretty well, but I think my berries were a bit tart to begin with.

Enjoy your jelly! Mmm!
