Blackberry wine-medicinal purposes

A very old recipe for blackberry wine used for colds, coughs and stomachaches.

BLACKBERRY WINE (UNCLE DAN’S)
(Mrs. Johnson, a farmer's wife from years ago)

3 quarts blackberries, put them in blender, 1 quart boiling water. Put in glass or enamel containers, let ferment for two weeks (cover to keep gnats out). Strain.

Mix juice and 6 cups of sugar, return to container and ferment for 2 more weeks (cover to keep gnats out). Strain and refrigerate.

Good for chest cold/coughs
Stomach problems
Use 1 oz every three hours.

Must be kept refrigerated.
 
Hmmmmmm, I may just have to make this. I feel a little bit of tightening in my chest indicating a cold coming on.

Really!

I think it works. Have made it several times over the years, and keep in fridge. Seems to work. I have 3-4 quarts of frozen blackberries in freezer that need to be used, so will make some more. I do give to friends who swear by it...maybe psychological...maybe really medicinal.

Sounds like wonderful stuff. I can't get blackberries here,well I can but they are expensive.

Daddy used to swear by blackberry brandy for intestinal problems...
He would also, during our snow shoveling sessions, (years ago when we actually used to get measurable snow) come outside with the small pretty etched wine glasses with a glass of blackberry brandy for each of us...a little warm up.
That's a fond memory I'll never forget.
