This blackberry cordial is marvellous, and its deep flavour and richness are incomparable. Once you’ve tried it, you won’t want to go back to artificial cordial from a supermarket. You can use it in hot or cold drinks, pour on hot porridge, mix with vodka or sparkling wine – the best way to preserve the flavour of summer all year round.

Wild blackberries looks exactly the same as the cultivated blackberries you find in the supermarket so you shouldn’t have any trouble identifying them in the wild. But if you are very new to wild food and are not 100% sure, or are looking for some tips on how to pick them, you can also check out my wild blackberry foraging guide.
