Homemade Blackberry Brandy (Vargas and Gulling) Recipe

From Cordials From Your Kitchen by Pattie Vargas and Rich Gulling:

* I have no idea what this is, possibly it's a common additive in jelly-making or canning.

Boil sugar and water together, cool. Crush blackberries, add fruit protector, let stand 2 hours. Mix all ingredients. Steep 1 month, shaking every day. Strain and filter (consider standing another day to let solids fall to bottom, and siphon off the top), age 1 to 3 months.

Units of measurement (unless stated otherwise)
1 cup = 8 ounces = 236ml
1 quart = 32 ounces = 944ml
1 tbsp (tablespoon) = 1/2 ounce = 15ml
1 fifth = 25.6 ounces = 750ml
1 tsp (teaspoon) = 1/6 ounce = 5ml
1 pint = 16 ounces = 472ml
