This quick and simple pomegranate jelly recipe makes a perfect gift. The secret is to use fresh or top quality store-bought pomegranate juice!
THIS Homemade Pomegranate Jelly Recipe is another from my past.
My grandparents had two giant pomegranate bushes in their yard. We would help pick the fresh fruit and would get completely stained as we ate the tiny seeds.
It was one of my favorite memories with my siblings. My grandma would take all of the seeds that we didn’t eat and make jelly. This jelly.
It is so unbelievably good. There is nothing quite like a warm piece of toast, slathered in melted butter, and spread with pomegranate jelly.

Tips and FAQs:
This recipe is actually super simple and uses minimal ingredients. All you need is juice, pectin and sugar.
Rapid boil until a thermometer reads 220 degrees or your jelly passes the spoon test. Fill sterile jars and seal closed.
Easy as pie.
What exactly is pectin?
Pectin is a starch that helps your jelly set or become more solid. It is the key ingredient in making jams and jellies. You can use a powdered or liquid version. Either will work with this recipe. I use the powder.
Can you use store bought juice for jelly?
Yes. I always try to use fresh squeezed fruit juice. However, sometimes it is just easier to use store bought versions. For this recipe I suggest purchasing quality 100% pomegranate juice. Try to avoid juice that contains added sugar.
