I’ve been planning to make some Sloe Gin, but as the berries won’t be ripe for months the project is on hold. In the mean time we’ve acquired rather a lot of plums (from a friends garden), which Becky has been converting in to plum jam and I’ve been mixing up with some gin.
I looked at a few recipes, all much of a muchness of plums + sugar + gin with varying quantities. In the end I used this recipe, straight forward and well written. Everything came together really easily, probably less than 10 minutes work. The two large Kilner jars are going to get a shake every day for the next week then popped in a dark cupboard for a few months, right in time for winter. Exciting!
