Thread: My wife just pulled a face.

  1. #1

    My wife just pulled a face.

    I made some sloe gin the other day and had a bowl full of unused sloes set aside to use when I get another bottle of gin. Wifey just waltzed into the kitchen, saw the bowl and popped one in her mouth thinking they were blueberries. Yes, ladies do spit and swear!
    You can't say muntjac without saying, Mmmmmm.

    They are quite palatable after soaking in Gin and brown sugar for 2 or 3 months.

    And a fist full of almonds, and maybe a tiny bit of a vanilla pod.

    My wife's recipe,

    1 bottle of Aldi "Oliver Cromwell" gin approximately 9.65
    12oz of granulated white sugar
    1lb of "pricked"" sloes
    3 cloves
    1 stick of cinnamon

    Put in 1litre airtight jar and shake once every day for month, then shake occasionally for another 2 months. Decant and filter. Enjoy!

    Willie

    PS put a bottle of cheap red wine over gin soaked sloes, leave for 1 week. Enjoy again!
