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.
I love using this old school English plum in this jam recipe with my favourite hedgerow tipple made from foraged sloes. Superb on a hot toasted crumpet or on a scone with clotted cream and a pot of tea. Mmmm
