Prep: 10 Minutes
Cook: 8 Minutes


2 quarts fresh blackberries
1/2 cup water


Bring blackberries and water to a boil in a 3-quart saucepan. Reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes or until blackberries are soft.

Mash blackberries with a potato masher or fork; pour through a large wire-mesh strainer into a bowl, using the back of a spoon to squeeze out the juice. Discard the pulp and seeds.


When fresh blackberries aren't available, substitute 2 (16-ounce) packages of frozen blackberries, thawed.
