Thanks to the great folks over at POM Wonderful, I was able to make a batch of jelly that not only looks good and taste superb....these little beauties will make great gift items. If you know someone who may need a little pick me up, why not make a batch of homemade jelly, toss it in a simple basket with a loaf of fresh bread and tie a pretty ribbon on top. It's the little things that you can do for others that make such a statement....more than mere words can sometimes express.
3-1/2 cups POM Wonderful pomegranate juice
1 package (1-3/4 ounces) powdered fruit pectin
5 cups sugar
Sterilize clean jars and seals in a water bath canner. Keep jars hot until ready to use.
In a heavy pot, combine pomegranate juice and pectin. Bring to a full rolling boil over high heat, stirring constantly. Stir in sugar; return to a full rolling boil. Boil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly.
Remove from the heat; skim off foam. Pour hot liquid into hot sterilized half-pint jars or smaller 4-oz jelly jars, leaving 1/4-in. headspace. Wipe rims and adjust lids. Process for 5 minutes (time begins once water has come to a full rolling boil) in a boiling-water canner.
Remove jars from water bath and allow to cool. Yield: 6 half-pints or 12 (4-oz.) jelly jars.

**Thanks "Aunt C" for the heads up on this recipe. I had so much fun making it. But then again, I always have fun when I'm in the kitchen canning or doing anything else!
