Blackberries are in season and the delicious berries line the foot path where Poppy and I walk, so as we pass I have been picking. Yesterday I managed to come home with a kilo without trying hard! Looking in some old cookery books I found a recipe for Blackberry Jelly hand written in and decided to try it out. I have collected empty jars from friends and sterilised them in the dishwasher – a tip from Nigella. One tip, don’t over cook, watch the clock as the jelly will set firmly – but I am a novice when it comes to making preserves. Here’s the recipe ready to print:
Do let me know if you make it and if you can recommend anything else to make with blackberries other than crumble and jam.
PS. I also thought I’d share my homemade Jelly labels, Blackberry Jelly lable, in the second batch of jelly I used lime juice – worked brilliantly and just as delicious.
