Blackberry Jelly recipe

This is an excellent way to make use of any blackberries that you might have to hand. Blackberries are cooked over a low heat with water and sugar, then passed through a sieve before being mixed with soaked gelatine. Super easy, but super delicious.


  • 450g blackberries
  • 150g caster sugar
  • 250ml water
  • 4 gelatine sheets


  1. Place the blackberries in a small pan with the water. Bring to a simmer. Don't cook the fruit, just heat it through for 3-4 minutes. Sieve the fruit and the water into a large jug, squishing the fruit through the sieve to get more flavour from the berries.

  2. Stir the sugar into the blackberry juice. Soak the gelatine leaves in a little bit of cold water for five minutes or so, then remove from the water, squeeze out excess water and stir into the juice mixture until fully dissolved. Pour the jelly mixture into 4 glasses, then leave to set in the fridge.

Use blackcurrants, raspberries, or redcurrants instead of blackberries - this jelly recipe is a basic recipe that you can use for all berries. Recipe serves 4.
