Gooseberry, Apple & Mint Jelly


This Gooseberry, Apple & Mint Jelly is a sweet and delicious, delicate jelly with a hint of freshness from mint. The apple flavor is enhanced by cider vinegar which makes it absolutely perfect with lamb. Make it now and save some for spring.

These are my top three tips for making this jelly recipe.

1. Do not peel or core the apples – leaving these in will help the jelly to set.

2. When the fruit is dripping over a container, do not squeeze the fruit or the jelly will be cloudy and not clear.

3. To check that the jelly is set, place a few saucers in the freezer to cool. These will be used to test if it is set.

To make Gooseberry, Apple & Mint Jelly, you will need the following ingredients:

Steps to make Gooseberry, Apple & Mint Jelly


Bring gooseberries, apples, mint and water to a boil


Place 800 grams of gooseberries, 500 grams of diced Bramley apples and a bunch of mint in a large heavy bottomed pan. Add just enough water to cover the fruit and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes until the fruit is soft.


Add cider vinegar


Add 425 milliliters of cider vinegar and simmer for 5 more minutes.


Leave to drip overnight


Remove the saucepan from the heat and pour the contents into a jelly bag or muslin cloth. Leave to drip overnight over a large container.


Place a few saucers in the freezer


Place a few saucers in the freezer to cool. These will be used to test how the jelly sets.


Boil juice with sugar


Pour the juice into a saucepan. Stir in 450 grams of sugar for each 575 ml of juice.
Heat gently, stirring constantly until the sugar dissolves. Remove any scum that forms on top with a slotted metal spoon. Once the sugar has dissolved, bring the contents of the pan to a boil. Once the jelly is at a rolling boil, keep stirring for 15 minutes before removing from the heat.


Test setting consistency


Take a saucer from the freezer. Spoon a few drops of jelly onto it and leave to cool for a minute or two. Run your finger through the jelly, and if it’s ready it will wrinkle slightly. Return the pan to the boil if it is not ready.


Chop mint leaves


As the jelly cools, chop the mint leaves finely.


Stir mint into jelly


Stir the chopped mint into the jelly until it is evenly dispersed.


Pour the jelly into sterilized jars


Transfer the jelly to sterilized small jars. Place the lids on top straight away.



Store in a cool, dark place for up to one year. Once opened, store in the refrigerator.
