3 cups ripe blackberries, fresh picked and rinsed OR 2 cups frozen and thawed
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
sugar, xylitol or Stevia to sweeten to taste.
1/4 cup homemade Blackberry wine, blackberry cordial or blackberry brandy (optional)
Reserve 1 cup fresh blackberries for garnishing.
To make a seedless puree: Whirl 2 cups blackberries in a processor (not a blender) to puree the berries, without breaking the seeds. Pour the puree through a strainer into a bowl. Use the back of a spoon to push the “meat” of the fruit through the strainer. Discard the seeds.
Add the allspice to the puree and add the cordial and stir.
Taste and determine if you desire to add sugar, xylitol or Stevia. Sweeten to taste.
