Easy HomeMade Blackberry Jelly – My Family Ties

When the girls broke up for Summer last week we celebrated with some homemade jelly, so simple to make but tastes so good. It was lovely to make this with the girls as they were so surprised to find out that we could make our own jelly from fresh fruit so easily and the best bit is that it still tastes like fruit! Don’t get me wrong they love me to make their old favourites ( shop bought) but this version they enjoyed as they could see the whole process from fresh fruit to homemade jelly the best bit for them was mashing the fruit up, Lara was convinced she had made jam! 

The great thing about this jelly is that it is so easy to make so you can get the kids to help at each step, the only downside that Lara pointed out is that you have to wait a few hours to try it out!

  • 80-100g Caster sugar (just alter to taste)
  • 150g Blackberries
  • 200ml Water
  • 2 Teaspoons gelatine powder


  • Put the blackberries, sugar and water into a small saucepan and heat gently on a low heat until all the sugar has dissolved and the fruit has softened.
  • Prepare a large bowl and sieve and pass the liquid through the sieve pushing the fruit mixture with a wooden spoon.
  • Add extra hot water until the liquid reaches 500ml in total.
  • Return the fruit liquid to a clean pan and sprinkle over the teaspoons of gelatine.
  • Stir in the gelatine to dissolve over a low heat and once it has all dissolved take off the heat and allow to cool.
  • Pour the jelly into bowls and chill in the fridge for at least four hours.
  • Serve with ice cream or Greek yogurt.
