Pomegranate Jelly

OK, I can't grow pomegranates in New Harmony.  But it sure is nice to have family in Moapa Valley, Nevada which is home of the pomegranate festival held the first weekend in November. My mom is wonderful to always bring me a gallon of  fresh pomegranate juice.  It's great to drink fresh and makes a delicious jelly. It's one of our family favorites.

The recipe is out of Ball Complete Book of Home Preserving .  This is great book. It has some really good unique recipes and produce combinations. Each recipe has tips and suggestions for how to use the product after you can it.  Some of my favorite recipes are out of this book.  And I always try new recipes each year.  No reason to eat the same thing year after year. 

 Pomegranate Jelly

3 1/2 cups of pomegranate juice
 1 package powdered pectin
5 cups of granulated sugar

  • Whisk juice and powdered pectin in pot.  
  • Bring to a boil.  
  • Add all the sugar.  Return to boil.  Boil 1 minute.  
  • Skim foam off the top of jelly.
  • Add to jars.  Wipe rims.  
  • Adjust 2 piece lids and process 10 minutes in a boiling water canner. 
  •  In New Harmony add 10 minutes to the time for high altitude.

Skim the foam off.

Fill hot jars.  I put mine in dishwasher and leave in there until I'm ready to fill them.  Wipe rims.  Keep lids in scalding but not boiling water.
