“This recipe, posted in response to a request, is from an elderly friend from church. She makes this every year to raise funds for missions work. Jaboticaba jelly tastes, to me, like a tart raspberry jelly with no seeds. I have never made this, or any other jelly, but if anyone has questions about it, I can always ask Florence.”
4 jars

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 -4 lbs jaboticabas, to make 3 to 4 cups of juice
  • 3 -4 cups sugar


  1. To make juice, cover fruit with water and boil till soft.
  2. Use a colander to strain juice, then use a potato masher to smash fruit and put it through the sieve as well.
  3. Place equal amounts of sugar and juice into a pot and boil it"till it scoots across a spoon" or a candy thermometer registers 220°F
  4. Place into sterilized hot jars and seal.
  5. NOTE: Amounts and time are guesses; I was not able to pin Florence down on this very well (and I quote), "Every time it is different".
