While were walking around the stone circle in Avebury, we came across a bush covered in sloes. Fantastic, we thought. More sloe gin on it’s way.
Despite the fact that they were possibly possessed with very druid-like greatness, we decided it wouldn’t be such a good idea to start picking them, after all we were on a site of very historical interest. We took to the road and looked out for more bushes.
A few miles up the road we took a turning to nowhere in particular and found not one, not two, but five bushes absolutely stuffed full of the most massive sloes I had ever seen. 😯
Maybe it was because we were in the south, maybe they get less rain and more sun. Who knows, but we filled a bag in no time at all – leaving the bushes still full for the next pickers.
Now we have 3 litres of sloe gin on the brew.
Oh and yes – I couldn’t wait until Christmas…. I had a little taste of the first batch I started. :yum: :yum: :yum: :yum:
