Pomegranate Jelly

Yesterday I spent the morning making pomegranate Jelly. I have a great recipe and I know a few have asked for it. It is super simple. First pick your pomegranates. Next the worse part juice all your pomegranates. Juices around our parts goes for 25.00 dollars a gallon. Here is all I got this year out of ours.
 Next put your lids in a pan full of water on low to heat them up
 Wash all your bottles and rims.
 Take 4 cups of juice and 1 package of pectin
 bring to a boil, then add 5 cups of sugar, bring to a boil add 1/2 teaspoon on butter to help with the foam and boil for 2 minutes.
 Pour into jars, put the warm lids and rings on them and turn them over so they will seal. Super easy and super yum. I made 6 batches and got 24 pints. I had a gallon of juice left and I froze it. It will freeze for 1 year. We use it to make ice cream that turns out super good.

Thanks for the recipe. I have always wanted to make pomegranate jelly. What is the best way to juice the pomegranates?

the best way to juice them is to cut them in half and put them press that juices things alot of work but the juice is great.

I also make pomegranate jelly - did you know that you can dilute the juice with apple juice and you can't tell the difference at all - I usually do about half and half - anyhow it makes it so I get tons of jelly. Love the stuff!

When you have sealed the jars and find out it is to running. Can you empty the jars into pan and add more pectin to fir it up
