Strange bright light in the morning sky & at last stopped raining so went scrambling along coast path with step ladder & bucket for the last of this year's sloes. Not been a good sloe year down here, despite my bumper apple crop at home, but the few that are left are particularly large, juicy & almost semi-sweet.

All I want now is a gin tree; unfortunately it'll have to be Sainsbury's Worst @ 9 bottle. Roll on the 2015 vintage, if there's any left after the necessary intensive testing. I wonder what sloe+apple gin would be like ??.

What was that you said Mr Brown ?. I must have gone deaf (as well).

P.s. now read your Link, Thanks. You've still got to buy taxed alchohol here in UK though. Now lets see: sugar, water, yeast & a few feet of copper piping - should work ?.

Don't forget..when the sloe gin is ready, take out the sloes, drain and pat dry, cover in chocolate...yummy chocolate liqueurs! But watch the stones

Interesting idea Gemini. I've tried various by-product uses for gin-steeped sloes over the years but never with much success; too many damn stones.
