Method

1. Tip the fruit into a clean, sterilized jar with a wide neck - you’ll have trouble stuffing them into a very narrow-necked bottle. Pour in the sugar and top up with the gin.

2. Seal and shake to encourage the sugar to start dissolving, then turn gently every few days for between 8 and 12 weeks before drinking.

Ingredients

  • 450 g wild damsons, pricked 2-3 times with a clean needle
  • 225 g sugar
  • 700 ml gin

Tips and suggestions

You don’t need to wait for a frost as you do with sloes, because damsons don’t have such tough skins.

If you are going to keep the damson gin for more than 3 months, strain off the damsons. Don’t discard the used damsons: remove the stones, chop, and stew them with sugar for use in sweet pies, spoon over ice cream or add them to a fresh lot for an extra kick to jam or jelly. Most of the alcohol in the gin-soaked fruit will cook off, but some gin flavour will linger.

Try serving a small shot of damson gin with full-flavoured hard cheeses such as a tangy cheddar.

"If it can't be grown, it must be mined" Natural resources are the foundation for our lives and lifestyles. What would our lives be like without mining? Imagine a world without transportation such as jet planes or railroads, without communications such as cell phones or radar, without decorative items such as art or jewelry, without buildings such as skyscrapers or parking garages, without defense systems items such as missiles or submarines, without medical care items such as X-rays or surgical tools.

S Made Bacon
In this YouTube video they describe how bacon is made. It’s really interesting. Bacon is a cured meat prepared from a pig. It is first cured using large quantities of salt, either in a brine or in a dry packing; the result is fresh bacon (also known as green bacon).
