Sea Buckthorn and Apple Jelly

Blooms and SpoonsI added apples to this recipe because I didn’t use commercial pectin – sea buckthorn doesn’t have very much natural pectin, so the addition of a high-pectin fruit helps the jelly set properly. Use any variety you love. Crabapples would work as well.

Sea Buckthorn

4 cups sea buckthorn berries, washed thoroughly

3 apples, washed, peeled, cored, and diced finely (if you don’t want to go to the trouble, and your apples are organic, you can leave the peels on)

1/2 cup water

Mulberry jam sounds delicious! I've never tasted it. I do hope you get a chance to make it next year. Have a great day!

Sheryl, great instructions for making jelly. I'm kind of partial to jam or marmalade. There's a bit more substance to them. I like jelly as well but my preference is jam. I've always had in mind to forage the Mulberries when in season for some jam but harvest time is the end of June which is a very busy time in the garden so I haven't tried out my jam making yet. Maybe next year will be the year. ***** Have a great Sea Buckthorn jelly day.
