Oops. Really should have checked the recipe.

Hello Friends,

I’m a bit behind with the sloe gin again this autumn.  I’ve had the sloes in the freezer for about 3 weeks.  It will be ready for Christmas – just.

This afternoon I sat in the kitchen pricking away at the sloes.  I’d got my jars lined up and the sugar and gin.  I make sloe gin every year, so I didn’t bother to check the recipe and happily put 450g sugar into the jar along with 450g sloes and a bottle of gin.  It looked a bit full, but I just carried on an shook it up.

I then had a thought that may it would be a good idea to check the recipe.  Unfortunately I’ve used double the amount of sugar…

Oh well.  We’ll just have to see how it turns out.  Luckily I’ve only made one batch so far, so I will make sure I put the right amount of sugar in the other two.

Has anybody out there made sloe gin with too much sugar?  How did it turn out?

Until next time, Tawney x
