Brandy+blackberries+kumquats=delicious. Blackberries are often paired with orange, but the slightly bitter--but still bright--citrus flavor of whole candied kumquats makes this jam special (plus a bonus recipe for blackberry-infused brandy!).
This is closed jar pickle that ferments under pressure, carbonating the pickling liquid and keeping out that mustiness that comes from oxygen contact. Crisp and delicious, the pickle juice makes divine cocktails!
