Ingredients

For the pickled blackberries (fills1 x 1 litre Kilner jar )
  • 200ml red wine vinegar
  • 5 juniper berries
  • 5 black peppercorns
  • 3 allspice berries
  • 2 bay leaves
  • zest ½ orange
  • 1 tbsp sea salt
  • 75g caster sugar
  • 450g blackberries
For the toasties
  • 4 thick slices sourdough bread
  • 30g soft salted butter
  • 120g Brie* (we used Brie de Meaux)
  • handful of watercress
  • about 100g of the pickled blackberries, drained

Step by step

  1. For the pickle, put everything apart from the blackberries in a pan with 200ml of water. Heat over a gentle heat until the sugar has dissolved. Bring to the boil and then remove from the heat immediately. Set aside to cool completely.
  2. Put the blackberries in a large, sterilised jar and pour over the cooled pickling liquid. Seal the jar and leave in a cool place for 5 days to mature. Once opened, keep in the fridge for up to 1 month. They are delicious served with a cheeseboard.
  3. For the toasties, butter both sides of the bread and then divide the Brie between two slices. Top with some watercress and pickled blackberries, then top with the remaining bread. Heat a frying pan over a medium-high heat; fry the sandwiches for 2-3 minutes on each side, pressing down gently as they cook, until the bread is golden and the cheese has melted. Serve immediately. *Use vegetarian cheese if required.
