Boost Your Immune System with Black Mulberry Marmelade

Print Friendly and PDF
Because black mulberries are strong against pests, you can preserve them in the fridge or you can dry them to use later on. This fruit is a great antioxidant and a great boost for the immune system. Black mulberry mollases, pectin and "pestil" (dry paste) are commonly found in Turkey. It may be difficult to make these because they need a great deal of boiling, but with this recipe you can easily make black mulberry marmelade at home.


  • 2 kg of black mulberries
  • 3 cups of sugar


  1. Remove the stems from the mulberries, wash gently and strain.
  2. Put the mulberries in a pot and cover them with 3 cups of sugar. Wait for 1 day.
  3. The next day, cook the mulberries on low heat for 30 minutes.
  4. Leave to cool. When the marmelade has cooled down to room temperature put it in sterile glass jars.

If you have to ask
  • Why don't we add lemon juice? Because it's marmelade not jam.
  • Try not use marmelade prepared from fruit puree.
  • Enjoy your delicious blackberry marmelade!
