This is FABULOUS!!!! I came on here in search of a recipe to use my abundance of berries this year. This recipe was not only different, but I thought would be a nice change from the usual desserts you find for blackberries. I've now made 3 batches, it tastes wonderful and everyone who has tried it wants their own bottle!!!
