Pomegranate jelly 101

Once again, our instructor was Dick’s cousin Merrilyn.  She and husband Bob had already squeezed the juice – a big messy outside job. The juice must sit still for at least 24 hours to allow the sediment to settle.image

To celebrate our success, Merrilyn brought out a brownie torte. Yum!

What a great way to spend a Sunday morning! A new skill, good friends, 6 jars of pomegranate jelly, and a great dessert. Merrilyn, thank you once again.
