Sloe down

Last September we went out for lunch whilst in York, we went here. This involves navigating a few country lanes. On the way home the shout went up, SLOES! So the driver, intent on getting home sped up.  The next day my sister and I retraced our steps, bags in hand and raided the hedgerow of 5kg of Sloes. We carried a kilo back to Brighton, not on the train for once and froze them. This helps break down the skin and saves a bit of work which I’m all for. When we had secured the Gin we bottled Gin, Sugar and Sloes and apart from the daily/Weekly shake left it to do its stuff for 3 months.

Now its bottled ready to mature for next Christmas.

Aforementioned driver thinks he has to taste it weekly, I’ve put him straight.

  1. Have you made chocolates with the boozy sloes? I made some at Christmas, which were very good.

  2. It’s very good, isn’t it!
