Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good flavor I made this recipe with brandy. The flavor was awesome. Had it on ice cream and on pancakes. The brandy was a very subtle add. It's a little on the thin side, but for my purposes it was perfect. Will be keeping this recipe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So easy! This was one of the simplest canning recipes I have every done! The berries are amazing, not overly sweet. They are great over ice-cream. I used vodka as my choice of "spirits".
