My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 300 ml fruit juice or 300 ml water
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3 tablespoons sugar (or more, depending on the sweetness of your berries)
- 5 teaspoons starch (I used potato)
- 3 tablespoons cold water
- 400 g mixed berries, washed and drained (I like blueberries and red currants but feel free to use your favorites)
- 1In a small pot bring the fruit juice or water, vanilla and sugar to a boil.
- 2Meanwhile combine starch and cold water in a small bowl and stir to mix.
- 3When water is just starting to boil, add starch mixture.
- 4Let it come to a full boil; make sure to stir well as the starch will form lumps if you don't.
- 5Mix in berries and turn off the heat.
- 6Let your pot stand on the hot stove top for one or two more minutes, stirring once or twice.
- 7Pour everything into a bowl and chill until the jelly has thickened. This might take one or two hours depending on how thick you want your jelly to be.
- 8Serve with topping of your choice, or plain, and enjoy!
