As most foraged food is either unpalatable, bitter, or tastes ‘a bit like spinach’, our advice to you is to smother it with refined sugar and alcohol and transform it into a cheeky little apéritif and/or digestif. First up, Sloe gin.
Gin and cucumbers are a great match this infusion can be used for tons of drink recipes. Try the gimlet recipe first then maybe try out a G&T? Bear in mind you need to leave the gin to infuse for 1 week.
Taking a flavor note from a popular gin and bringing it to the front, I experimented with pickling cucumber slices using a brine of gin, mint, lime, and juniper. Like a eating a classic cocktail in delicious pickle form.
