Blackberry Wine

  • Blackberries
  • Sugar
  • Isinglass
  • Wine
The berries should be ripe and plump. Put in a large wood or stone vessel with a tap. Pour in enough boiling water to cover them. When cool enough, bruise well until all the berries are broken. Cover up. Let it stand until the berries begin to rise up to the top. This should take 3-4 days. Draw off the clear juice to another vessel. Add 1 pound of sugar to every 10 quarts of the liquor. Stir through and through. Let it stand for 6-10 days in the first vessel with the top, then draw off through a jelly bag. Steep 4 ounces of isinglass in a pint of wine for 12 hours. Boil it over a slow fire until all is dissolved. Place dissolved isinglass in a gallon of blackberry juice. Let it boil together and pour all into the vessel. Let it stand for a few days to ferment and settle. Draw off and keep in a cool place.
