Pomegranate Jelly Recipe


This quick and simple pomegranate jelly makes a perfect gift for Valentine's Day. The secret is to use top quality store-bought pomegranate juice. Feel free to experiment with blends like pomegranate-grape or pomegranate-raspberry. Processed in a hot water bath, the jars will keep for up to a year on the shelf. Otherwise, store them in the fridge for up to three months.

Rate & Comment


  • 4 1/2 cups sugar

  • 4 cups pomegranate juice

  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice

  • 1/4 teaspoon unsalted butter

  • One (1.75-ounce) package regular powdered fruit pectin


  1. Measure the sugar into a medium bowl and set aside.

  2. Combine the pomegranate juice and lime juice in a large, heavy-bottomed pot. Sprinkle the pectin over the juice and whisk until it dissolves, about 1 minute. Add the butter and bring the mixture to a boil over high heat. Add the sugar all at once and whisk to break up any clumps. Stirring constantly, bring the mixture to a full rolling boil. Boil hard for 1 minute.

  3. Remove the pot from the heat and skim any foam from the surface of the jelly with a cold metal spoon. Ladle the hot jelly into hot sterilized jars and process them in a hot water bath for 10 minutes.
