Ingredients

  • 3 1/2 cups pomegranate juice
  • 1 cup mashed raspberries
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 cups sugar
  • 1 1.75 oz package PINK Sure Jell Be sure to use the pink "low sugar" package

Instructions

  • Juice the pomegranates. You'll need 3 1/2 cups of juice. Depending on the size of the poms, you'll need about three. Measure out exactly 3 1/2 cups.
  • Clean the raspberries mash them well. You'll need exactly 1 cup.
  • Place jars, rings and lids into a pan, cover with water, bring to a boil and boil for three minutes to sterlilize, keep warm.
  • In a heavy stock pot, place the pomegranate juice, raspberries, chili powder, chili flakes, salt & butter (if using). Mix everything together well.
  • Measure ΒΌ cup of sugar and mix it with the contents of the Low Sugar Sure-Jell. Sprinkle it into the pomegranate/raspberries mixture. Mix well again and set it on the stove on high and bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
  • When it comes to a hard boil (a hard boil is one you can't stir down with spoon) add the remaining sugar.
  • Continue stirring constantly and return it to a boil and when it comes back to a hard boil, continue boiling it for exactly one minute. (Set a timer to make sure you get it for a full minute).
  • Remove from the stove & immediately ladle into sterilized jars. Place lids on jars, screw on tightly. Process in a hot bath (boiling water) for 10 minutes to seal the jars.
  • The seeds of the raspberries rise to the top of the jars. If you want to spread the seeds thru-out the jar, flip them over every 20 minutes for about an hour. As the jam begins to set & jell the seeds will be distributed thru-out the entire jar, rather than just at the top.
  • Makes 6-7 eight oz. jars.
