pressing the juice out of blackberries
I vowed last year to ask the brilliant folks here about this before I wasted more berry bulk this year. With ordinary kitchen stuff, how can I more effectively press the juice out of the berries, separating it from the seeds? Using a sturdy spoon to mush them in/against a wire mesh strainer seemed like not the most effective thing, and pretty rough on the strainer... I can't get my thinking out of that little box. Help please?!
I'd prefer to do it raw, but if it's insisted that cooking the berries first would help, I'll try it. Just trying to make a simply syrup by reduction of the juice.
