Servings 1 Pints


  • 1 pound blackberries (450 g)
  • 1/2 tsp peppercorns (freshly ground)
  • 1 cup water (250 ml)
  • 1 cup raw sugar (250 g)
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice


  1. Put blackberries into a medium sauce pan and mash them using a potato masher or a fork.

  2. Add the water and ground pepper. Bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce the heat, cover and let it simmer for about 10 minutes.

  3. Take the mix off the heat and strain using a cheesecloth. Squeeze to get as much liquid out as possible (careful not to burn yourself).

  4. Put the strained juice back into the sauce pan (i just give it a quick rinse to get out any blackberry pieces). Add the raw sugar and lemon juice.

  5. Stir until sugar has fully dissolved. Pour the mixture into a clean bottle or jar and seal. Store in the fridge for 1-2 weeks.
