Holiday Pomegranate Jelly!

Hey everyone! Blogland is such an amazing place! I received an e-mail from the very generous folks at POM Wonderful asking if I'd like to try their pomegranate juice-you bet and thank you! 
We've all seen the pretty bottles at the store:
I do like to can jams and jellies and thought this was a great opportunity to make jelly for 
Thanksgiving and Christmas gifts!

Holiday Pomegranate Jelly
  • 3 1/2 Cups POM Wonderful
  • Zest of an orange
  • 2 Tblsp lemon juice
  • 3 cinnamon sticks
  • 5 C sugar 
  • 1 box dried pectin
Combine POM, zest, lemon juice and cinnamon in large pot-add pectin, bring to a boil stirring constantly.
Add sugar, stirring until dissolved and bring to a rolling boil, boil one minute stirring constantly.
Remove from heat, skim foam and remove cinnamon sticks. 
Can and process in a water bath for 10 minutes. *Please review proper canning procedure on-line.
Makes approximately 6 half pint jars.

What can you do with the jelly? Anything! 
  • Use it as you would any jelly
  • Brush it on poultry or pork (thin in microwave if necessary)
  • Add a little mustard, a splash of vinegar and some oil to make a salad dressing
  • Add it to the center of thumbprint cookies
Don't hesitate to give POM Wonderful a try, this is good stuff folks!

Just Something I Whipped Up


  1. What an interesting flavor for jelly. It sounds yummy!

  2. Sounds delicious!

  3. What a great idea! I'd love the jelly as jelly and I bet it would be great on chicken and pork and plenty more! Looks delicious, it's such a pretty color!

  4. Looks and sounds wonderful, Lynn...Christine

  5. Love POM...I know it would make great jelly. Beautiful!

  6. This sounds like a delicious jelly. Great idea for the upcoming holidays!!!

  7. Thanks for passing this on. This would be a very unique gift for sure.

  8. Yum, yum, yum. This would be so delicious and such a nice gift.

  9. I make jams and jellies but I have never made pomegranite jelly -- what a deep delicious color for the holidays. Joni

  10. I love what you did with your Pom juice! It would taste wonderful in a thumbprint cookie!

  11. OK, this sounds wonderful, and Poms are SO HEALTHY!!! Just one benefit after the other. I could try this. I think...

  12. What a great idea to use up your POM wonderful. I love making jelly. Thanks for sharing!

  13. I got it too, but we didn't like it as a juice, kind of bitter. I was looking for something to make with it! I think I will try a salad dressing.
    Your idea for jelly is good!

  14. This jelly looks so pretty and is prefect for this time of year. I adore tangy pomegranates and buying the juice is genius! I think my family would love it on hot cornbread or rolls.

  15. Great idea. I have to llok for something similar because I guess it is not offered in Germany. But the idea of pomgranate jelly is yummy. Thank you.
    Greetings, Johanna

  16. Lynn, I think this would taste wonderful. I do not make jelly or can any more. So glad you do though! ♥O

  17. what a clever use of the POM juice Lynn!! I am using my case as the base for a punch for a baby showing I am hosting this next weekend :)


  18. My mom always made pomegranate jelly, but it was labor intensive juicing all those pomegranates. I love the ease of your recipe.


Thanks for stopping by!
