Blackberry Pepper Jelly

Tammy Brownlow


I love making pepper jelly with fresh garden peppers. I grow them every summer, and every summer I make pepper jelly to enjoy and gift to family and friends. I thought this year I would try something different. My fiance loves blackberries and we recently purchased a ton of them - So I thought I would add some to my pepper jelly.

We absolutely love the results! The blackberries added a beautiful color. I didn't have to add any food coloring as a result. The berries also added a wonderful flavor. I hope you get a chance to give this recipe a try.

How to Make Blackberry Pepper Jelly


  • 1You can adjust the heat of the jelly by removing the seeds from the jalapenos. I like the sweet heat of them in this jelly so I keep them.
  • 2Finely dice the jalapenos. I don't have gloves so I just use a sandwich bag over my hand to avoid touching the peppers while dicing them.
  • 3Finely dice and seed the poblano and bell pepper.
  • 4In a large dutch oven, heat cider vinegar and sugar on medium heat until sugar has dissolved.
  • 5Add peppers and cook until boiling.
  • 6Add berries and sprinkle pectin over mixture and stir in a tablespoon at a time.
  • 7Boil for 5 minutes.
  • 8Ladle into hot sterilized jars and boil for 10 minutes. Remove and let set for 24 hours before tasting.

    This will make great holiday gifts. Not only is it great with cream cheese and crackers, but it pairs very well with chicken. Grilled chicken wings tossed in the jelly is amazing! Enjoy
