These blackberry pulp popsicles are a great way to use the pulp left from juicing blackberries to make jelly. They are delicious and healthy with only two ingredients, blackberry pulp and honey or maple syrup.

We had a good crop of blackberries this year, so we made several batches of home-canned blackberry jelly. When you juice berries to make jelly, there is a lot of leftover berry pulp. If you want to make blackberry jelly, I recommend the recipe in the ball blue book (amazon link). In fact, my blackberry jelly got Best of Show at the fair!
I was trying to figure out a way to use the blackberry pulp and decided to try making popsicles. I simply added some honey (we have our own hives so we always have honey on hand) or maple syrup to taste and then froze the pulp mixture in popsicle containers. These healthy homemade popsicles are delicious and make use of leftover blackberry pulp that would otherwise become food waste.
Can you use other berry pulp to make these popsicles?
I have only used blackberry pulp, but I think raspberry pulp would be similar in texture and work really well.
Can you simply mash up berries to make the popsicles instead of using leftover pulp?
I have only used leftover blackberry pulp so far, but I think you could mash up strawberries, blackberries, raspberries etc. to make these popsicles.
Can you feed leftover blackberry pulp to chickens?
Absolutely! I found another use for our leftover blackberry pulp. I froze some unsweetened pulp in ice cube trays to give to the chickens on hot days. They love the frozen blackberry treats! It gives them something nutritious and cooling when the temperature rises. I simply freeze the unsweetened pulp in ice cube trays then transfer to a ziploc bag and keep in the freezer until use.
Leftover blackberry pulp (from canning jelly)
Honey or maple syrup to taste
Simply mix ingredients together and freeze in popsicle molds.
To remove frozen popsicles from the molds, run some tap water over the outside of the mold while gently tugging on the popsicle stick.
