Pomegranate Wine Jelly

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Whitney Donohue

This is a lovely jelly that sets up a pretty pink color. Or a deep red--it's all in the wine you choose to use!

I prepared this recipe as written, but the jelly did not set. I'm wondering if perhaps my pectin was a bit old? However, the result was tasty and I found it was very good in homemade cranberry sauce (I used about 1/2 cup with 12 oz of cranberries)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine wine, pomegranate juice, lemon juice, and pectin in a large pot. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Add sugar, stirring until dissolved. Return to a rolling boil. Boil hard 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Skim foam off top, if necessary.
  2. Ladle hot jelly into hot, sterilized jars, leaving 1/2 inch headspace. Tighten 2 piece lids. Process for 5 minutes in boiling water bath.
  3. *Note--you can use any kind of wine you like. I like to use a pinot grigio--mostly because it is my favorite, but also because it makes a really pretty pink jelly.
