Homemade Pomegranate Jelly

There are several methods for extracting your pomegranate juice.  I cut my pomegranates in half and scoop out the seeds.  I then place the seeds in a saucepan,  cover with water and bring to a boil.  I then strain the juice/seeds through a jelly cloth or cheesecloth.  If you don’t have fresh pomegranates, you can purchase pomegranate juice from the store. 
For other methods of extracting juice, check out this site here.  They have great pictures to go along with the directions. 

You Will Need:

  • 4 Cups Pomegranate Juice
  • 1 Package pectin
  • 5 Cups Sugar
Combine juice and pectin in a large saucepot.  Bring to a boil over high heat.  Add sugar, stirring until dissolved.  Return to a rolling boil.  Boil hard 1 minute, stirring constantly.  Remove from heat.  Skim foam if necessary.  Ladle hot jelly into hot, sterilized jars, leaving ¼ inch headspace.  Adjust two-piece caps.  Process 5 minutes in a boiling-water canner.  Yield: about 8 half-pints.

    What is the processing time for high altitude of 5100 feet?

  4. I would check with the extension office for your state but according to my local extension office, you would increase the time by 10 minutes for altitudes of 3001-6000 feet.
