1 pint white wine vinegar
1 pint ripe blackberries
1 pound white sugar
1/2 pound honey
Keep the blackberries and vinegar in a large, screwed down Kilner jar for one week, shaking several times each day. Strain into an enamelled saucepan, add the sugar and honey and just bring to the boil. Remove from the heat, stir until the sugar and honey dissolves and bottle when cool. Cork and wax and store in a cool, dark cupboard.
For colds and sore throats take a tablespoonful in a glass of hot water at bed time.
