Berry Fruit Jelly
Prep: 10 min
+ 4-6 hours setting time
Cook: 0 min
Servings: 4
Add your favourite berries to make this colourful, wobbly treat your own!


  • 2 cups no-added-sugar apple and blackcurrant juice
  • 3 tsp powdered gelatine
  • 1/2 tsp rosewater essence, optional
  • 250 g strawberries, quartered or 300g frozen mixed berries or blueberries


  1. Place ½ cup juice and gelatine into a 1-litre microwave safe jug. Microwave on HIGH for 1 minute to boil and dissolve gelatine.
  2. Mix well while pouring in remaining juice and essence.
  3. Divide fruit among four 250ml (1-cup) capacity serving glasses.
  4. Pour juice over fruit and carefully stir with a teaspoon to distribute fruit through jelly.
  5. Cover each glass with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight until set.

These jellies are best made 6 to 8 hours before serving. If left for more than 24 hours, the fruit will begin to soften in the jelly.
Rosewater essence is found in baking aisle of supermarket with other flavourings and vanilla. It is inexpensive and adds a subtle sophisticated ‘Turkish delight’ flavour.

Serving Suggestion: For a special occasion, jellies present beautifully in a long stemmed wine or martini glass garnishes with mint and extra chopped fruit.

    I doubled the recipee and used Nudie Apple and Blackcurrent juice thickened with the gelatine. This was a healthier jelly for my Daughter who had her wisdom teeth out, and very delicious. Nothing artificial. I'll be making it again !!!
