Pomegranate Jel

BY : PUBLISHED : October 26th, 2012 UPDATED: August 25th, 2021

We were gifted some beautiful pomegranates and I juiced some to make this tangy treat. Quite tart, it would be nice served alongside a rich meal.
This amount of agar produces a soft-set gel. If you’d like it firmer, increase the amount by 1/2 t. – 1 t.

I always buy my agar powder at Asian markets. It’s typically much cheaper there than elsewhere. An .88 ounce packet is only $1.49 at my local market and is enough for several recipes.
