Makvali (Blackberry Sauce)

This tart summer sauce refreshingly highlights roast chicken.

Makes One Cup

1 1/2 cups of ripe blackberries
1 small garlic clove, peeled and roughly chopped
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/2 small hot red or green pepper, minced
1/4 cup of minced mixed fresh dill and cilantro
1 or 2 teaspoons of lemon juice
