Sloe Gin

The country’s covered in these sloes right now. They’re the fruit of the blackthorn tree so every hedge should have some. Don’t attempt to eat them. They’re bitter and horrible. They’re a member of the plum family. You can make jam, or better still SLOE GIN with them. Paul picked these on the bog line near Finea about two weeks ago and the gin should be ready for Christmas. Isn’t it a beautiful colour?
