Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Bring boiling-water canner, half full with water, to simmer. Wash jars and screw bands in hot soapy water; rinse with warm water. Pour boiling water over flat lids in saucepan off the heat. Let stand in hot water until ready to use. Drain well before filling.
  • Crush black raspberries thoroughly, one layer at a time. Place three layers of damp cheesecloth or jelly bag in large bowl. Pour prepared fruit into cheesecloth. Tie cheesecloth closed; hang and let drip into bowl until dripping stops. Press gently. Measure exactly 4-1/2 cups prepared juice into 6- or 8-qt. saucepot. (If necessary, add up to 1/2 cup water for exact measure.)
  • Stir pectin into juice in saucepot. Add butter to reduce foaming. Bring mixture to full rolling boil (a boil that doesn't stop bubbling when stirred) on high heat, stirring constantly. Stir in sugar. Return to full rolling boil and boil exactly 1 min., stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Skim off any foam with metal spoon.
  • Ladle immediately into prepared jars, filling to within 1/4 inch of tops. Wipe jar rims and threads. Cover with two-piece lids. Screw bands tightly. Place jars on elevated rack in canner. Lower rack into canner. (Water must cover jars by 1 to 2 inches. Add boiling water, if necessary.) Cover; bring water to gentle boil. Process 5 min. Remove jars and place upright on towel to cool completely. After jars cool, check seals by pressing middles of lids with finger. (If lids spring back, lids are not sealed and refrigeration is necessary.)

Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from On line recipe is different than recipe in Sure Jell Box The Sure Jell printed directions for Cooked Black Raspberry Jelly says to use "4 1/2 Cups crushed black raspberries. That made no sense. Jelly does not have seeds. When I went to the On-line recipes the directions say to "use 4 1/2 Cups of prepared juice." Big difference between crushed berries and juice. Glad I came to the on-line recipes. I suggest you correct the printed directions included in the box of Sure Jell. An inexperienced jelly maker would be unhappy with the outcome if they used 4 1/2 Cups of crushed berries. I make black raspberry jelly every year for my family and for gifts. It is wonderful. I always use Sure Jell.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Jelly As another review stated, the recipe in the box of SureJell called for 4 1/2 cups crushed black raspberries. Jelly doesn't have seeds. That is why I came to the site--I wanted to double check the accuracy. Used 4 1/2 cups juice and it turned out fine. Would be VERY helpful to correct the insert in the box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than the Rest! I made three batches of black raspberry jelly at one time and I found three different recipes. I liked this one the best because it called for a little more juice and a whole cup less sugar. Overall jelled better and had better flavor. This recipe is a winner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious Directions in sure jell are very confusing. No where does it tell you amount of juice needed after draining to make jelly. Online we found the correct recipe, which was more helpful than directions in box which were incomplete.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy I have been making black raspberry jelly for years. The recipe that comes in the sure jell box always called for how many cups of juice. This year however it did not. It called for 41/2 cups of crushed berries. I wish I would have kept one of the old recipes from years past as it had the correct amount of juice to use. I see that I am not the only one that has come across this problem. Thank god for the internet, I have now written this recipe down and placed in my recipe box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I love SURE JELL for making black raspberry jelly. I wouldn’t want to use anything else. I did notice a misprint in the printed instructions that come in the box. In the ingredients column for Black Raspberry Cooked Jelly, the recipe calls for ‘crushed black raspberries’. The recipe should call for ‘prepared juice from the berries’ as it does in the recipe found online. The crushed berries are for the JAM recipe, not JELLY.
