"I definitely liked the taste, but I had the same problem everyone else had--it doesn't jell, and after thinking about the canning process more closely, the reason is that you need to allow pectin ampl..." See moree time to heat at its boiling point. Tried it a second time, and this is what I suggest.... Use the box of powdered pectin (1.75 ounce) and add the pectin with the juices. Bring to a boil, THEN add the sugar and bring to a second boil for about a minute. This goes hand in hand with the pectin manufacturer's guidelines (who I called)."
"Lovely flavor. I was so impressed I used every single pomegranate on my tree to make this recipe. Granted, I only had a couple dozen fruit on the tree, but never the less all were invested in this d..." See moreelicious jelly. I did as others had suggested and used the powdered pectin, mixing it first with the juices, bringing to a boil and then adding the sugar and again bringing it to a boil. As far as juicing the poms.... bottom line- wear gloves! The lovely purple color stains but the following day your hands will actually look a deadly green- quite impressive. I juiced with a citrus juicer but found that a lot of the fruit did not get squashed so what was left I put in the blender and pulsed it a bit and then put everything through a strainer. The fresh fruit juice is a bit more tart than the 100% juice found in our grocery store but once mixed with the lemon and the sugar really has a delightful taste. I am planning on including the jelly made in Christmas gift baskets- it was that good!"
"We made this yummy jelly in no time at all. We used pomegranate juice from the health food store, worked great (saves the mess too!) I noticed in other reviews the jelly didn't set up as they expected..." See more. Once I added the pectin, I let it full boil for 1 minute. IT SET PERFECT! Tastes kind of like grape jelly. What a wonderful addition to our holiday jelly making! Thank you Holly!"
