I have all the ingredients in and I plan a little play. The blackberries are in the freezer, the brandy in the cupboard and the sugar in the pantry . Mr Grumpy Guts keeps reminding me that I have chores to do and all I wanna do is PLAY. Think I will be doing this much later on - care to join me,
1 kg blackberries
115g granulated sugar
75cl bottle brandy
Lighty crush the blackberries with a wooden spoon before putting into a wide necked bottle and adding the brandy. Leave to steep and macerate for about three months then strain through a jelly bag or you can use coffee machine paper filters which help filter out any sediment and which can then be disposed of. Decant into sterilised bottles and seal - put in the alcohol rack in your pantry/store. Bring out as home-made liquer to your guests at Christmas. Don't want to share - keep it in the corner and have a treat now and then.
