This had so, so, so much flavour and I don't think there's anything more to say about this other than that.
Oh, and...Part II of my impromptu blackberry-like berry series.
Recipe from Williams-Sonoma
3 C. Water
2 C. Sugar
6 C. Blackberries
6 Tbsp. Lemon Juice
~In a medium saucepan, combine water and sugar, and heat until sugar dissolves.
~Add in berries and cook until rendered down.
~Push mixture through a fine sieve, saving the juice and discarding the seeds and pulp.
~Chill mixture (I sped this up by placing in freezer for ~1.5 hrs).
~Proceed according to ice cream maker instructions.
