No local cranberries in California, but no worries. Pomegranates stand in for a sweet-tart, hard-set jelly that resembles the stuff from a can you grew up with. (But you'll have to carve the ridges yourself.)
Gearing up for holiday gift giving? Here's a real work-horse jelly. Unusually beautiful, unusually tasty and unusually easy (shhh, don't tell...) Good with juice from a jar, better with fresh. Plus that makes a better story.
