This beetroot jelly is one of my favourites.

Ingredients (serves 8)

  • 1 can Beetroot
  • 1 packet Port wine jelly
  • 500 gms Hot water
  • Squirt Canola spray


  1. Boil water and melt jelly crystals.
  2. Spray a glass pie dish.
  3. Drain the rest of the beetroot juice into the jelly and mix through.
  4. Layer the beetroot on the bottom of the pie dish covering the bottom of the dish. Pour the jelly over the beetroot.
  5. Cover and refrigerate until set. Cut up into squares.

  • Is the like cranberry jelly on meat?


  • This is a confusing recipe. Is it sweet or savoury. Not sure if I’m keen to try it. 500gms of water or 500mls?


  • A very interesting concept – do you just serve it with a salad or do you have a special meat dish that you serve this with? I love beetroot in so many ways, especially cold beetroot soup with buttermilk, as well as the traditional borscht.


  • Beetroot jelly is something l haven’t tried,thou l do like beetroots!


  • Never heard of Beetroot jelly before, learn something new constantly from this website. Thanks


  • An interesting concept.


  • Very different sounding Jelly has anyone else tried this

    • My Great Aunties did jellied Beetroot and I watched my Mum do it a few times. Canned Beetroot is normally in vinegar. They used to drain the vinegar into a bowl and put the beetroot into the bottom of a particular glass dish they always used. They used to dissolve some gelatine in boiling water in a cup, add it to the vinegar and stir it through. then pour it over the beetroot, put the lid on and place it in the fridge. The vinegar acted as a preservative so It didn’t have to be eaten for a few days.
