Even though both of my grandmothers were expert jam and jelly makers, I didn’t learn the craft from them. I picked it up later in life and never looked back. Today I’m sharing one that my entire family (on all sides) has enjoyed for years. Along with being tart and sweet, it is one of the prettiest jellies we make. Enjoy our Pretty Pomegranate Jelly Recipe and make it a favorite in your household too.

Pretty Pomegranate Jelly Recipe

Ingredients

5 Cups Pomegranate Juice

1/4 cup lemon juice or juice from 1 large lemon

1 tsp Butter

1 box Powdered Fruit Pectin (1.75 oz)

6 1/2 cups Granulated Sugar

Instructions

Prepare your sterilized canning jars , lids and rings before starting.

Bring the water in your water-bath canner to a boil with rack installed.

Combine pomegranate juice, lemon juice and powdered fruit pectin in a large stainless steel pot .

Add butter (to reduce mixture foaming) and bring to a rolling boil, stirring continuously.

Add sugar and bring back to a heavy boil. Boil for exactly one minute, still stirring.

Remove from heat.

Skim off any foam that has developed.

Carefully ladle jelly into prepared jars, leaving about 1/4" headspace.

Wipe rims clean of any spilled jelly before placing lids on jars.

Attach rings to finger-tight snugness.

Place in water bath and boil for 5 minutes.

Once processed, remove from water and place on towel on counter to cool.

Check to see if jars are sealed by pressing finger in middle of lid. If lid springs back, the jar isn't sealed and will need refrigeration.

Notes

This recipe is easily customized by using other juices or mixing various liquids. Cranberry and grape are two popular choices to make tasty jellies.
