Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 cups sour cherry juice
  • 1 cup unsweetened 100% pomegranate juice or 1 cup apple juice
  • 1 (1 3/4 ounce) packagepowdered pectin
  • 2 teaspoons hot pepper flakes

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, combine cherry juice and pomegranate juice. Stir in pectin until dissolved. Stir in pepper flakes. Bring to a full rolling boil over high heat, stirring constantly.
  2. Add sugar in a steady stream, stirring constantly to dissolve sugar. Boil hard for 1 minute.

  8. Hot Cherry Pomegranate Balsamic - Replace 1/4 cup of the cherry or pomegranate juice with balsamic vinegar.
