Blackberry Vinegar

Feeling a bit under the weather today so I had a cup of hot blackberry vinegar this evening. Husb and I managed to get a final pick late in September and put the fruit into large jars, packing it down lightly,and covered the fruit with white wine vinegar. After a few days,we strained the fruit through a jelly bag and for each pint of liquid,added a pound of sugar. The whole lot was brought to the boil then immediately poured into warmed clean glass bottles for storage. At the first sign of a cold,put a couple of teaspoonfuls into a cup and top up with hot water. It’s an old cold remedy and very soothing.

Here’s a digital drawing I did when I was out and about earlier,of a couple of street people.
