Very easy to make, very hard not to taste test every evening.
If you want to make some here is the recipe:
- 1.5 kilo Damsons
- 600g Sugar
- 2 x 75cl cheap gin
I washed the damsons well then removed the stalks.
Then slit each one down the side to allow the gin to seep into it.
I then had the task of getting rid of all the pretty bubbles from the demi-johns that I had managed to make while washing them. 23 rinses later, no bubbles.
I weighed out the sugar ready - I just used regular granulated sugar.
Then started layering it into the jar. Some damsons, then gin, then sugar.
And then we were done! All I have to do now is to shake it once every day to make sure the sugar dissolves, and here comes the hard part - LEAVE IT ALONE TO BREW!
Do you have a brew on this year?
