This Pomegranate Juice Jelly Homemade Canning Recipe is a delightfully exciting addition to place on your food storage pantry shelves. Canning a few batches now will result in a delicious jelly to be spread across your golden brown slices of toast on a future cold winter morning.
Pomegranates are an ancient fruit with a rich history. With a bright, unique flavor, this is a jelly spread for grownups. Sure, kids love it too, but if you think jelly is for kids’ lunches, it is a sure bet that this pomegranate jelly will change your mind.
5 1/4 cups fresh pomegranate juice
1 packet plus 3 tablespoons less or no-sugar needed powdered pectin
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 cups sugar
This old fashioned method conserves the natural flavor of the fruit and helps it set up properly.
It’s great as an edible gift from your homestead kitchen and as the holiday season approaches upon us quickly – this is a great way to get ahead of that busy time.
If you or a neighbor is not lucky enough to have a pomegranate tree, purchased pomegranate juice can be used as well such as Pom Pom.
