Easy to make pear and apple jelly.


  • 150ml syrup from pears in syrup
  • 1/2 cup apple sauce (refer to note)
  • 100ml hot water
  • 1 tablespoon gelatine
  • 1/2 cup pear juice (refer to recipe)


  • Extra fruit (diced)


1. Dissolve the gelatine in the syrup in a small saucepan and bring to the boil over low heat. Allow to boil gently for 2 - 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
2. Add the pear juice, water and apple sauce and stir well.
3. Place a few pieces of the diced fruit into the bottom of four individual jelly moulds or a medium sized bowl and pour the jelly mixture over the top. Place in the fridge to set, about 1 hour.


Moderate Salicylates, Low Glutamates, Low Amines

Refer to the Basic Page for the pear juice recipe.

Apple sauce made using Red or Golden Delicious apples is moderate salicylates.  There is a recipe for apple sauce on my other blog - Just Simply Food.

Most gelatine contains preservative 220, however this can be boiled off as I've done in this recipe.  Very sensitive people may still have a problem with this.
