Nutritional values

In raspberry jelly, the sweet berry is preserved for us beyond the summer. Fortunately, because raspberries contain anthocyanins and ellagic acid. Some experts believe that these secondary plant substances can prevent cancer.

You can also cook raspberry jelly out of season: Use frozen instead of fresh raspberries.
