DIRECTIONS

  • Divide the blackberries between 3 sterilised 500ml ‘Kilner’ jars (or alternatively use other sterilised jars/containers that you can seal tightly, or place blackberries into one very large container).
  • Pour in the sugar, dividing it equally between the jars; divide and pour in the brandy.
  • Seal the jars tightly and shake them well.
  • Store in a cool, dark cupboard and shake every other day for a week, then shake once a week for two months; the brandy be then be ready to drink, but will keep improving if you can manage to leave it for longer!
  • When the brandy has steeped for at least two months, strain it off into a 1 litre bottle (you can reserve the fruit for a very boozy dessert; a few berries are great served with vanilla ice cream); it is now ready to serve.
