Foraging

My rough guide to making sloe gin!

In autumn hedgerows are rife with fruit, and the abundance of sloe berries from the common Blackthorn tree provides easy pickings for foraging. However if you’ve ever tried eating one, you’ll be all too familiar with the bitter dry taste left behind in your mouth, and so you might wonder how they can be of use…

Now are you feeling ‘ginspired’? So don’t forgot a tupperware box on your next countryside stroll this season! With such a simple recipe it’s well worth the effort; whether its to give to someone as homemade christmas gift, or even just for you to enjoy the sweet nectar that has become of your handy work in a few months time.
