Recipe For Rosemary Jelly

I am a lazy jelly / jam / chutney maker – I do not like the hassle of starting from scratch, leaving stuff overnight, or making sure I get the sugar levels right. So, I like to cheat when making jellies and jams and chutneys. Most times I get it right, and hopefully this is one of them. For the original Rosemary Jelly recipe please see PinkPolkaDot’s post here. I will be sending a bottle of my version to Pink for her seal of approval 🙂

  • 1 tin pie apples
  • 6 sprigs rosemary plus extra for bottling
  • 125 mls apple cider vinegar
  • 125 mls white wine vinegar
  • 225 g sugar - I used fructose


  • place the apples and 3 rosemary sprigs into a pot with the vinegar and bring to a boil over a moderate heat
  • boil for 5 minutes then strain off the liquid and remove the rosemary sprigs
  • return the apples to the pot with 3 more rosemary sprigs and the sugar
  • dissolve the sugar over a low heat and then bring to the boil
  • boil rapidly for 10 minutes
  • put a sprig of rosemary into a sterilized glass jar
  • pour in the jelly and seal
