A bit more info on sloes. If you are making sloe gin, the berries really need to be picked after they have had frost. Otherwise, pick and put into the freezer to help break them down.Then enjoy.
Recipe for Sloe Gin can be found on the internet sites. Just key sloe gin into the search engine.

If you can't afford gin you can use cider and you don't need premium cider, scrumpy is good if you can get it.

After picking your sloes, weigh them and after bruising them slightly (put them in a plastic bag and hit them with a rolling pin gently), put them in a demijohn. Add the same weight of sugar as the sloes you put in the jar and cover with cider.

Put an airlock on the jar.

That's it, wait for a few weeks and then enjoy. happy :) happy :)
