This isn’t a cooking blog (and I think we can all be thankful for that), but I make this every year and people are always asking me HOW, so here we are. I’m about to tell you how to make pomegranate jelly!
When the air gets a little crispy around the edges and there’s fun sized candy everywhere which you eat in moments of weakness and then you realize moments of weakness happen far more often than you thought before the tiny Milky Ways found their way into your home, you know Halloween has blown away and it’s time for…POMEGRANATES (and subsequently: pomegranate jelly)!
Step Two: Now that the kids are gone, gather the mason jars you purchased for a nonsensical Pinterest project. Lay a dishtowel on a cookie sheet and pour boiling hot water onto it. Then turn your jars upside down onto the dishtowel/cookie sheet. Keep this in the oven at around 300 degrees.
Step Three: Pour 3 1/2 cups of pomegranate juice. You will also need 5 cups of sugar.
Step Four: Pour the pomegranate juice into a pot. Set your stove to high heat. Add a pectin packet and stir until it’s boiling.
Step Nine: Share your jelly with a friend. These make delicious Christmas gifts, and they will make any peanut butter and jelly sandwich taste like magic!
