Canned blackberries with brandy

There’s just something warm about these soft berries that appeals to us especially in the cold winter season. Maybe it’s because they ripen in the hottest part of summer, and when we taste them, we go back to summer in our thoughts.

What will we need

  1. 200 g of blackberries
  2. 400 g of blackberries
  3. 50 ml of water
  4. 200 ml of water
  5. 200 g of sugar
  6. Whole cinnamon
  7. 50 ml brandy (Metaxa/Hennesey)
  8. A teaspoon of nutmeg


  1. We will prepare pre-sterilized or completely new jars for canning
  2. Give preference to those with a threaded closure
  3. Put 200 g of blackberries in a small pot and mash them with a potato masher
  4. Add 50 ml of water and bring the mixture to a boil
  5. Cook for about 2 minutes
  6. Then strain the blackberries through a sieve and discard the trapped pulp
  7. Bring 200 ml of water with sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg to a boil in the next pot
  8. Cook for about 5 minutes and then add 400 g of blackberries, brandy and strained blackberry juice
  9. We continue to cook and stir continuously to reheat the blackberries
  10. But we mix carefully so that the blackberries do not get crushed too much
  11. Using a slotted ladle, place the cooked blackberries in the canning jars, but do not fill them to the brim
  12. Using a ladle, pour the hot blackberry syrup over them, leaving about 3 centimeters of space from the edge of the glass
  13. We wipe the glass, close it with a lid and tighten it tightly
  14. Turn the filled glasses upside down and let them cool

Blackberries soften the canning, so they get rid of their typical bitterness. They can be used as a supplement to flavor white yogurt, pancakes, fritters or as a topping for vanilla ice cream.

Canning blackberries in the oven

Canning in the oven is much easier than, for example, in hot water. In particular, it will save you a lot of time and work. But even this method of canning has several principles that must be followed, namely:

Thorough sterilization of jars

Canning in the oven only in jars with a thread

Use the same size glasses

The glasses must not touch each other or the tray in the oven

Use a deeper tray to pour the water into

What will we need

  1. 2 kg of fresh blackberries
  2. 1 liter of water
  3. 300 g of sugar


  1. Wash and clean the blackberries under cold water
  2. We fill them in washed glasses
  3. We will prepare a sweet pickle with which we will cover the blackberries
  4. Boil sugar and water in a saucepan
  5. Pour this hot infusion over the blackberries
  6. We close the jars with lids, which must be threaded
  7. We turn on the oven at 250 degrees on the hot air mode
  8. We put an old tea towel on the bottom of the tray, which we cover with water to a height of about 2-3 centimeters
  9. Place the glasses on a baking sheet and put them in the oven
  10. We preserve the blackberries for about 8 minutes
  11. When the specified time has passed, we then place all the jars upside down on the kitchen counter and let them stand quietly for 12-24 hours
