What to do with all the Hedgerow Fruits that don’t go in the jelly?

I’m making the BBCgoodfood hedgerow jelly, which asks for all the juice but none of fruit. What can I do with the mush of sloes, blackberries, apples, elderberries, haws, and rosehips that are left? I’m thinking infused vodka, but even that seems a waste of so much loveliness.

The Jelly looks amazing though

Any ideas?

There’s certainly some great ideas in there, thank you! Since the jelly wanted to drip, and not be squeezed, there will be so much lovely pulp still in there and I hate to see it go to waste. Crumbles and muffins sound like a great idea

I never usually get a chance to bake with left over fruit because my DH usually stirs it into his porridge. But if I do manage to get there before he does, I make this www.saga.co.uk/magazine/food/recipes/desserts/apple/apple-blackberry-and-elderberry-squidgy-pudding

That looks amazing. Thank you!

Since I have loads, I think I’m going to go for crumble, squidgy pudding, flavoured vodka and hedgerow ketchup. That’ll be enough to be getting on with grin

You need to be careful about the rosehips; you need to make sure the solids aren't used as they have fibres in them.

Good tip, thank you. I’ll be pushing it all through a sieve

For rosehips, they need to go through a muslin, the fibres will go straight through a sieve.

It is what they used to use to make itching power. You don't want to eat those.
