this is the most wonderful Jelly it bring back such memories from my childhood all the women in my family making jelly.
I know many would consider it cheating, but I bought the pomegranate juice ready squeezed. Trader Joe's has a variety from concentrate, and POM is fresh, but pricier. I'm sure it is better when you do it yourself, but this worked for me!
Superb! Other recipes use way too much sugar - this one has right amount of tang and sweetness! Family and friends love it!
I found an easy way to juice the pomegranates. Cut them in half and juice as you would oranges. Filter through flour sack towel in a cone colander. You may have to strain twice. Juice is very clear.
I cleaned the pomegranates under water by removing the seeds - that way none of the white stuff (which is bitter) gets into the jelly. BUT it takes a LONG, LONG time and is really a lot of work! So must be a labor of love. Jelly is lovely - I used 4 cups of fruit juice (instead of 3 1/2) because I had plenty. (I cooked the seeds and strained TWICE - which adds to total time of preparation.) Prep time of 1 hour is a joke - I'd say more like 4! Lucky for me, I have a pomegranate tree - I cannot image having to buy the fruit - the jelly would be way too expensive to make that way. I use the jelly as gifts - it is still quite expensive to make.
I have been making this jelly for years. I scrub the pomegranates, then cut in 2 or 4 pieces depending on size, then press in an old Wearever juicer. Then I freeze the juice in amounts for a batch of jelly and make the jelly at my leisure.
when I make this recipe, I first pick all the seeds and then boil them and then strain them thru colander and then fix the juice into containters and then process this receipe later. As when I am seeding the promgranates it takes quite awhile to get all them done and I do it in two stages.. But my husband loves this jelly, I also make a syrup for pancakes which I love..
If you are making a lot of batches of the recipe, a wine press works wonders on juicing a large quantity of this fruit.
I suggest deseeding the fruit prior to trying to squeeze the juice from it.
I prefer to score the skin in quarters. Then soak fruit in a sink full of cold water for 15 minutes. Break apart under water and separate seeds from membranes. Catch seeds with strainer, (seeds will sink to bottom) and skim peel and membranes floating in water. Then extract juice in blender or juicer. This is much less messy than squeezing juice with citrus juicer.
