You can eat them straight (be careful, the seed juice stains), juice them, or in this case, make pomegranate jelly with them. The process of canning jelly is specific to what fruit you are canning, the type of pectin you are using - whether natural, liquid, powder - and the ratio of juice to sugar to pectin.

I'm sorry my posts have been few and far between lately. You may choose from one of three excuses: 1) School is back in full swing, and I'm crazed. 2) I am sick as a dog with the allergies and hay fever (damn ragweed!). 3) Every "free" moment I have is spent with another canning project--they never end at this time of year!

I'm pretty sure I jumped up and down, begging her to send me the recipe for my blog, as I get really excited about the idea of canning tomatoes . She was nice enough to do so, and even included a bonus recipe for a garnish, which are pickled green cherry tomatoes. OK, for the mix, she started with this recipe but said it's too bland to stand alone.
Food may be canned in glass jars or metal containers. Metal containers can be used only once. They require special sealing equipment and are much more costly than jars. Regular and wide-mouth Mason-type, threaded, home-canning jars with self-sealing lids are the best choice. They are available in ½ pint, pint, 1½ pint, quart, and ½ gallon sizes.
