Used 250g of blackberries and only added 25g of sugar. I put the puree in a small saucepan brought the mixture to the boil and added about half a teaspoon of arrowroot mixed with a bit of water which gave the puree a bit more body. Delicious served as a topping for my vanilla cheesecakes in a glass.

Made a half portion of this with wild brambles. Worked perfectly and tasted delicious with a batch of apple and cinnamon scones. Would definitely make again.

Fab! And so easy. I used 500g of blackberries and 150g of sugar - a bit too sweet even for me, so check your blackberries! But still usable.

Not surprised it was too sweet if you reduced the fruit by a third and used 50% more sugar!

Loved this recipe. I made it with 350gr blackberries. This was the only adjustment I made. Absolutely gorgeous.

Loved this recipe, so easy to make. I kept portions in freezer, was great stirred into porridge or topping things like icecream etc

I used 500g blackberries with about 150g of sugar but then maybe all my blackberries weren't really ripe.

750 g blackberry is a huge portion, I used only 250 g. It's very delicious with apple scone, indeed.
