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.
