Apple and blackberry cordial

contact.
home.

1kg apples (windfalls are fine, just cut off the manky bits before weighing)

 

1 kg blackberries

 

700ml water

 

sugar

Chop the apples - no need to peel or core. Put in a large pan with the blackberries and water and cook for 30-45 minutes, until its all mushy.

 

Strain using a jelly bag overnight.

 

Measure the resulting juice and add 700g of sugar to each litre of juice.

 

Bring to the boil just, stirring the sugar to dissolve ( you don't want to cook this a long time or the pectin present might result in jelly rather than cordial!)

 

Bottle in sterilised bottles. Keep in the fridge and drink within a couple of weeks, or freeze.
