    • you are quite right! We might have been trying to keep a secret 😉 …but the brandy adds just that much more! Amend the recipe and add to a single batch of the jam, 3 Tbsp brandy- 1/4 cup.. and just remember if you add more… then cook it down longer.. you want the alcohol to burn off and leave only the flavor.
