Ingredients

  • 1 quart ripe blackberries
  • 1 pint white vinegar
  • 1lb loaf sugar
  • 8oz honey

    Method

    Put the blackberries into an earthenware jar and pour on the vinegar. Leave them to stand for a week, stirring and pressing the blackberries two or three times a day to squeeze out the juices. Strain the liquid into a saucepan and add the sugar and honey, and boil for five minutes. Cool completely and pour into dark bottles. Cork well and store in a cool place. Use one tablespoon of cordial in a glass of hot water as a good bedtime drink; again, it is very good for relieving a cold.
