Blackberry Cordial with Brandy 
Found on pinterest

Select large ripe blackberries. 

Mash and strain through coarse cheesecloth without heating them. 

To every quart of juice add 

2 cup sugar. 

Tie in thick muslin bag 

4-1/2 tsp grated nutmeg or use ground, 

1 tbsp whole cinnamon or 1 cinnamon stick, 

1 tbsp of allspice, 

1 tbsp whole clove. 

Boil juice and spices slowly for 25 minutes. 

Remove from heat and remove spice bag and stir in one pint of brandy. 

Cool completely and pour into sterilized jars. 

The brandy is the preservative so this does not need to be processed. 

Store in a cool dark place. Ready to drink.
