Gooseberry and Strawberry Jelly

Gooseberry and Strawberry Jelly
Recipe type: Jelly
Cuisine: British
  • 1kg (2lb 3oz) gooseberries
  • 1kg (2lb 3oz) strawberries
  • 150ml (1/4 pint) water
  • sugar: 500g (1lb 2oz) for every 600ml (1 pint) of juice
  1. Top and tail the gooseberries.
  2. Place all the fruit and the water in a preserving pan and cook slowly for about an hour.
  3. Transfer the pan contents to a fine muslin bag and allow to drip over a container.
  4. Leave for about an hour or until juice no longer drips from the bag. DO NOT squeeze the bag - this will force pulp through and produce a cloudy liquid.
  5. Measure the juice collected and place it in a clean preserving pan.
  6. Bring the juice to the boil.
  7. Add 500g (1lb 2oz) of sugar for every 600ml (1 pint) of juice.
  8. Keep on a medium heat and stir well until all the sugar has dissolved.
  9. Bring to a brisk boil and keep it there for about 10 minutes or until setting point is reached.
  10. Transfer to warmed and sterile jars, and seal well.
