12 Days of Edible Gifts: Pomegranate Jelly

Our 12 Days of Edible Gifts continues with a juicy homemade jelly. I used to think that jams and jellies took hours to can, but I'm glad I realized was wrong. This recipe for pomegranate jelly takes only 15 minutes of active time, and costs under $10 to make. Most importantly, it's a heartfelt gift. Turn the jelly into a pretty package by using a festive ribbon to tie the container together with a few baguettes and a cloth napkin. To make your own pomegranate jelly this holiday,

The cans will seal in a water bath if you leave them in until they pop. I have been making this for several years and have not had any go bad on me as long as you keep them refrigerated after opening...they last forever.

@goatimpact -- yes, it should work with other juices! You could do a grape jelly with grape juice, and so forth...
