Blackberry Flummery

Flummery is an old fashioned sort of pudding, and this recipe belonged to Julie's grandmother. It is very easy to make, and tastes delicious.

Wash a quart of blackberries

Combine in a saucepan with 1/2 cup hot water and 1 1/4 cups sugar

Add a dash of salt and cinnamon

Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer gently until slightly syrupy - usually 5 to 8 minutes.

Mix 3 tablespoons water with 2 tablespoons cornflour, making a smooth paste. Add this to the hot blackberry mixture and stir over a gentle heat for 3 to 5 minutes until the mixture has thickened and become slightly translucent.

Pour into a serving bowl and leave to cool. Serve cold.
