Blackthorn, sloes and sloe gin

A short video where I talk about blackthorn, sloes and sloe gin!

How to make sloe gin

  • Freeze 500g of sloes for a couple of hours before pouring into a jar
  • Add 1 litre of vodka and 250g of sugar, put on the lid and put in a dark cupboard
  • Shake daily until the sugar has dissolved
  • Leave as long as you can resist, strain and bottle!

Blackthorn, sloes are some of the many things we talk about on our 1 Day Foraging Courses and our 2 Day Fruits & Fungus Forage.

You can see photos form both of these courses, as well as all of our others, on our Facebook page.
