      Title: Blackberry cordial
 Categories: Beverages
      Yield: 1 Servings
      3 c  Ripe blackberries
      3 c  Sugar
      3 c  Water
      2    3 inch long cinnamon sticks;
           -broken in half
      4    Whole cloves
    3/4 c  Premium French brandy
  In a food processor fitted with the metal blade, or a blender, briefly
  puree the blackberries to a coarse consistency. Set a jelly bag or
  fine-meshed sieve lined with 2 layers of dampened cheesecloth over a
  large nonreactive bowl. Pour the puree into the jelly bag or sieve
  and let the juice drip through for about 3 minutes. When it slows to
  an occasional drip, press firmly on the puree with the back of a
  large spoon to yield more juice, being careful not to force any pulp
  through. The puree should yield 1 1/2 to 1 2/3 cups of juice.
  In a large, heavy nonreactive saucepan over medium heat, combine the
  sugar, water, cinnamon and cloves. Heat the mixture, stirring often,
  for about 4 minutes. When the sugar begins to dissolve, reduce the
  heat to low. Continue to heat, stirring constantly, until the sugar
  has completely dissolved and the mixture is clear, 4 to 6 minutes
  longer. Remove from heat and transfer the sugar mixture to a medium
  nonreactive bowl. Let stand at room temperature to cool completely.
  Remove and discard the spices. Gently whisk the blackberry juice and
  brandy into the cooled sugar mixture until well blended.
  Using a funnel, pour the blackberry cordial into dry, sterilized
  bottles, leaving 1/2 inch head space. Cap or cork, using new corks,
  and store the bottles in the refrigerator. Let the cordial mellow in
  the refrigerator for 3 weeks. Store, refrigerated, for up to 6
  months. Serve at room temperature. Makes 4 pint-sized bottles.

  NOTES : You can use frozen blackberries in this recipe, which has
  been made in American homes since colonial times. When packaged in a
  decorative bottle, this libation makes a great gift.
