BLACKBERRY VINEGAR

18th century recipe

Blackberry Vinegar is a wholesome drink that is easily made and can with advantage have its place in the store cupboard for use in winter, being a fine cordial for a feverish cold.

Gather the berries on a fine day, stalk them, put into an earthenware vessel and cover with malt vinegar.

Let them stand three days to draw out the juice.

Strain through a sieve, drain thoroughly, leaving them to drip through all day.

Measure the juice and allow a pound of sugar to each pint.

Put into a preserving pan, boil gently for 5 minutes, removing scum as it rises, set aside to cool, and when cold, bottle and cork well.

A teaspoonful of this, mixed with water will often quench thirst when other beverages fail and makes a delicious drink in fever.
