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.
