Blackberries and sloe berries go so well together! that sweet and wild mix will make a delicious drink, or why not even use it in a cake? Sloe berries are well known for their dry, bitterness so you can surprise yourself and others with delicious sweet sloe berry cakes!
1 kg of mixed Sloe Berries and Blackberries
1 liter Water
600 grams Sugar
How to do it:
Bring to boil the berries and water. Then simmer for 10 minutes. The sloe berries will pop and the skin will split, the blackberries will become very soft and turn red. Mash them up with a potato masher whilst still on the heat. Then boil again.
Sieve the mixture into a big bowl, use a fork to help squish as much as possible through the sieve. There should be a lot of liquid but it's nice to get some pulp too, it makes it more "home-made".
Then pour the liquid back into the pot and add the sugar. Heat up gently whilst stirring until all the sugar has dissolved. Then bring to a boil again.
Cool down and funnel into a couple glass bottles.
Keep refrigerated and drink/cook/eat/use within 10 days.
