Blackberry vinegar recipe

If you love balsamic vinegar you’ll love this recipe – it’s equally useful and extremely cheap to make using blackberries you’ve picked yourself.

Blackberry vinegar is great in salad dressings or used as a cordial to treat colds.



  • Blackberries 450g
  • White wine vinegar
  • Sugar


  • Step 1

    After washing, steep the blackberries in just enough white wine vinegar to cover them. Cover the bowl.

  • Step 2

    After about four days, strain the blackberries and liquid through a sieve or muslin.

  • Step 3

    Place the resulting liquid in a pan and add 225g sugar to every 275ml of liquid. Bring to the boil and simmer for five minutes. Cool, then bottle.
