the tea lady picking sloes, now we have had a frost!
5 pounds ish of sloes picked and stalked, now we have had the frost. Its not the spirit that counts as much as how you use it! I put pound for pound sugar for sloes and pour in any clear spirit, gin, vodka or rum. Agitate daily etc then after a few months decant. Don't chuck away the fruit, pour over some cheap port and leave for a few months. Decant and seive out the stones, mix with catering chocolate into a mold leave to set (you can add nuts) and enjoy!
