This last week, I went and visited my parents who live about an hour away from me (which I am so grateful for...) and we made Pomegranate Jelly from off our tree in the backyard. This fruit, once you open it up...has the most beautiful, vibrant seeds inside. They almost look like little gems...:-)
I have never had Pomegranate jelly before, so I was a little skeptical on how good it would be...and let me tell you (in case you think the same way as I did) this jelly is SO very delicious! Plus it makes for such a cute, festive, bright RED gift for your friends--
You will Need:
-About ten pomegranates (or you could buy pure pomegranate juice at the store if you don't want to hassle with the seeding and juicing)
-1 box of pectin
-5 cups white sugar
-6 to 7 8oz. jars
Get another pot of water ready, to boil your bottles...(I think this lemon squeezer is the neatest thing...turns them into lemon pancakes *ha)
(no bueno!) Continue stirring until it reaches (as my mother says) "a rolling boil that cannot be stirred down"
Then add in your 5 delicious cups of sugar! Boil hard for 2 minutes...Remove from the heat and let stand for about a minute...
