Simple Steps To Homemade Pomegranate Jam

WE HAVE PLANNED TO DO POMEGRANATE JAM EVER SINCE WE ARRIVED IN MARCH.. but we kept keeping it off till last weekend and it now June.  LOL... Anyway, better late than never!

Finally the day has arrived...I was getting all excited by then, never "witnessed" before how jam is done at home.  First thing, the bottles must be well sterilized and dried... and we did just that the night before so that all would be dry and clean the next day.

And then the process of jam making began.....
Yes, the recipe was placed on the table next to the ingredients....
Firstly, measure 4 cups of pomegranate juice and put them in a big bowl...
Secondly, put in 7 1/2 cups of fine sugar into it....
Bring them to a boil....
Add in the two sachets of Certo....
Bring them to a hard boil for 30 seconds...
Yes, I did the "timing" using my handphone... 
30 seconds and off the fire...
Scoop them into the bottles....
Tighten the lids and placed them upside down for 5 minutes...
Why?   I think it is something to do with "releasing air... :)
For each portion of 4 cups of pomegranate juice, we have 9 bottles of jam....
Yes, we did the whole process again and again for 5 times... 
Soon.. all the juice are finished...
And we have 45 bottles of Pomegranate Jam!
No..they are not for sale... LOL
They are "gifts"... 
How I wish I could take them home with me...
But as it is now, I cannot take more than 2 bottles...
WHY?
Cos.... 
My suitcases are already "bloated!"
Sigh...

  2. I have never made jam. It seems so complicated, I am sure I would fail at it. The color is very pretty and jewel-like!
