This recipe uses fresh blackberries foraged in autumn when they grow abundtantly in hedgerows. Frozen blackberries can also be used thawed. This sweet fruity syrup can be used on pancakes, icecream, desserts and also in cocktails. The recipe can be adjusted according to the amount of blackberries you have. Pretty bottles of syrup also make great gifts.
