HI so I making hawthorn berry jelly. Lots of recipes on google and no indication in these to remove the pips from the middle of berry. yet elsewhere I read that the seeds are poisonous?

Any idea if I'm putting myself in an early grave if I make the jelly keeping the pips in (ps haws as many will know are more pip than flesh)

Yes they are poisonous to eat, you simply must strain then after cooking through a fine muslin cloth.

Yeah manyalynne ty for that - what confuses me is most of the recipes (incl the ones in the link) call for the berries to be crushed -

I'd have thought that would have crushed the pips / seeds too?

I'm gonna go ahead n make the jelly tho (have the juice dripping thru for overnight right now).

I guess there's so many recipes and not a single one I've seen for the jelly calls for the pips to be removed manually (thank goodness lol) so it'll be ok.

As in another post that you n I have both commented upon tonight at least I can include it in my prayers ;)
I shall include you in mine x

Well that was a pointless exercise... 1.5lb of berries yielded about 1/4 cup juice lol
