Pomegranate-Apple Jelly!!

My dad has got his big promotion today and i'm soooo excited about it.......Congratulations Daddy!! He is THE MOST down-to-earth person i've ever seen in my entire life. Am so proud to be his daughter. He's been a great inspiration to me and i always wanted a life parter who can be as good as him, luckily i got one :)). To celebrate my dad's achievement, i made this colorful yummy Jelly today, I wish my parents were here to c how happy i'm. Keep your cool this summer with the Jelly recipe i'm gonna share now!!

Pomegranate-Apple Jelly is a beautiful two layered dessert that pairs a translucent gold colored apple jelly with a shimmering garnet colored pomegranate jelly. One spoonful will tell you this is not the wobbly children's dessert made by stirring a fruit flavored powder into water. This jelly uses real pomegranate juice and real apple juice so it captures the true essence of these fruits.


I was also surprised at how quick and easy it is to make. All you do is stir unflavored gelatin into real fruit juice. If you are using sweetened fruit juices, then leave out the sugar that is called for in the recipe. Also, I like to use the unflavored gelatin that comes in powdered form, which is sold in the baking section of most grocery stores. 
It comes in small boxes which hold four - 1/4 ounce (7 grams) (scant tablespoon) paper envelopes of tiny granules of powdered gelatin. These granules are tasteless, colorless, and odorless and in order for them to become a thickening agent, the pomegranate juice and the apple juice need to be hot. 

Look at that beautiful 2 layered texture...........YUMMYYYYYYY!



So we start the recipe by sprinkling three teaspoons of the unflavored gelatin over one third cup of cold water and then leave it, untouched, for about five to ten minutes so the gelatin has time to soften and become all swelled and spongy. Meanwhile we heat the lightly sweetened pomegranate juice until very hot, but not boiling
The softened gelatin is then stirred into the hot pomegranate juice and placed back over low heat until the gelatin has completely dissolved (stir constantly). (To check to see if the gelatin has completely dissolved, dip a spoon into the gelatin and check to see that all the crystals have melted.) The jelly is then removed from the heat, left to cool slightly, poured into serving glasses, and refrigerated for two to four hours or until set.



The process is repeated for the apple jelly.




Pomegranate Jelly:
3 teaspoons unflavored powdered gelatin
1/3 cup  cold water
2 cups unsweetened Pomegranate Juice
1/2 - 2/3 cup  granulated white sugar



Directions: Sprinkle the gelatin over 1/3 cup (80 ml) of cold water. Let this mixture sit for about five to ten minutes, or until the granules have become swelled and spongy. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, heat the pomegranate  juice and sugar until very hot (do not boil), stirring constantly to dissolve the sugar. Stir the softened gelatin into the hot juice and place this mixture over a low heat and stir constantly until the gelatin has completely dissolved. Do not boil. Remove from heat and let cool for about 10 minutes before pouring equal amounts into serving glasses. Refrigerate for about 2 - 4 hours or until set.




Apple Jelly:
3 teaspoons unflavored gelatin
1/3 cup cold water
2 cups unsweetened Apple Juice
1/3 - 1/2 cup granulated white sugar

Directions: Once the pomegranate jelly has set begin the apple jelly. Sprinkle the gelatin over 1/3 cup (80 ml) of cold water. Let this mixture sit for about five to ten minutes, or until the granules have become swelled and spongy. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, heat the apple juice and sugar until very hot (do not boil), stirring constantly to dissolve the sugar.  Stir the softened gelatin into the hot juice and place this mixture over a low heat and stir constantly until the gelatin has completely dissolved. Do not boil. Remove from heat and let cool for about 10 minutes before pouring the apple jelly over the set pomegranate jelly. Refrigerate for about 2 - 4 hours or until set.


Garnish with fresh pomegranate seeds or grapes or any fruits and/or softly whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. This dessert can be made a day ahead.


Try to use 100% real juices and also unsweetened ones so that you can adjust the sugar level as needed. This jelly tastes like Jam, it also goes great with bread. Kids will enjoy this dessert bcoz of the impressive texture it has got.


Thanks for watching the recipe.
Hope you have a great weekend.
Will c u soon with yet another Temptation!
