Sweet Pomegranate Jelly

Sweet Pomegranate Jelly created by Mrs. Lumpy

I love pomegranates and it is hard to have to wait for the late fall season to be able to have them. So making this jelly is second best. You do not have to make the juice, it can be purchased in the Health Food section of your supermarket or a healthfood store. Make sure it is pure pomegranate juice. A good brand is POM. They even have mix pomegranate and mango, plus other combos! If making this for gifts, you could probably make them in the 4 oz jars. A truly beautiful and tasty jelly. If you like currant jelly, you'll love this!

    Nana Lee, so then I am to understand there is no water processing involved? And by reading these posts apparently 2 liquid pectins should be used? I too tried making last year but couldn't get to properly gel... Would you happen to know if cold or moisture will affect the gel solidification process? I no longer live in nc where I tried this the first time but have moved to the west coast beach area of Wa... so a little above sea level I believe.. Will this affect anything do you know? I appreciate any and all help you or ANYONE can give me? OR know of a link or recipe that will be able to have at least a year of dark storage like the other jams I've sucessfully canned this year? . Ciao for now and thanks so much in advance... Happy Holidays, Nana Debbie.....

    Miss Lee, I followed your recipe for pomegranate jelly 2 days ago. It still hasn't set-up. How long should it set before it jells

    We made this pomegranate jelly last Monday. Although it looked wonderful, it didn't jell, so last Friday we made it again using fresh liquid fruit pectin, this time it jelled fully. Wonderful tasting.

    I only give this recipe 4 stars as I had to re-do it and add another packet of liquid pectin after a day. It would not set up with only one. I read the recipes for other types of jellies on the box insert and for that quantity of juice/sugar it required 2 - 3 ounce packets. I'm hopeful it will come out this time, it appears soupy yet but definitely closer to semi-solid than it was.
