Easy Blackberry Jam

Olly’s wine pairing: Amarula Cream Liqueur (17%, 70cl) £13.50, Sainsbury’s

Creamy, sweet and pleasingly zesty, this is a silky delight to pour chilled into white wine glasses from the freezer and drink alongside the Blackberry Jam.

Blackberry and Pear Crumble

Olly’s wine pairing: Brown Brothers Orange Muscat & Flora 2022 (9.5%, 37.5cl) £8.50, Tesco

This luscious, sweetly scented dessert wine is sheer class served chilled or over crushed ice with the Blackberry And Pear Crumble.

Baked Blackberry Cheesecake

Olly’s wine pairing: Seifried Sweet Agnes Riesling 2019 (10.5%, half bottle) £16.99,

Splash out on this zingy bottle of concentrated deliciousness. A small tot served cold is all you need to champion the Baked Blackberry Cheesecake.

Blackberry Lemon Fool

Olly’s wine pairing: Graham Beck Rosé Brut (12%) £13.99, reduced from £16.99 until Tuesday, Waitrose

The plush berry depth of this stellar South African rosé echoes the fruit of – and zings wonderfully with – the Blackberry Lemon Fool.
