When my DH took the doggies to the Firehills this morning for their daily run and play, I decided to go with them and pick sloes. Have you ever tasted sloe gin? It is the most delicious liqueur and luckily doesn't taste anything like gin. I don't like gin, don't even like the smell of the stuff, but sloe gin, thats a totally different matter. I'll start it tomorrow, and it will be ready in time for Christmas. Oh, I can't wait to get it going, seeing the beautiful deep rich red colour develop in the big wine making jar over the next couple of months.
I adore the rich purply blue plum colour of the sloes as well, with that gorgeous lighter blue waxy bloom on them. So I got a bit carried away taking some photos after I got them home -
I have also made my inchie for this week's challenge, but not before it got dark, sigh, so I'll have to wait til tomorrow to photograph it in daylight.
