This is sooooo good! I wanted something other than a jelly for the abundant wild blackberries that proliferate much like weeds in my area. While jelly is great, there is only so much that you can use or give away! This glaze is excellent on meat or as a dipping sauce. It is spicy, but that is how we like it!
Spicy Blackberry Chipotle Glaze
Based on the original recipe at Driscoll's Berries
2 t olive oil
2 c diced onion
6 cloves garlic
4 T chipotle chilies in adobe, chopped
3 quarts blackberries (12 cups)
1 1/2 cups balsamic vinegar
Juice from 1 lime
1 c sugar
2 t salt
Cook onion in oil for 4 minutes. Add garlic and cook 2 minutes. Add chilies and cook for 1 minute more.
Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 40 minutes.
Purée in food processor or blender. Strain in fine mesh to remove seeds. This will reduce mixture significantly but do not be concerned, the end product is worth it!
Return to heat and cook for an additional 10 minutes.
Ladle into 6 half pints. Boil in water bath for 15 minutes.
