Made Sloe Gin last year, decanted it off the Sloes & thought mmmmm, they taste nice, so bought some choc bars, melted them down, stoned the Sloes ( sounds like an expression my father used to use-‘stone the crows’) and mixed in the Sloes.
Lovely!
Pi.....ed choccy, hic!

What a brilliant idea, I'm gonna try that with the ones I've got, think I'll try it with some 85% chocolate. (y)

@Mikey RV
You’re welcome to do so, but you’ll have to get a hustle on-leaving on 6th March! :D
Where are you off to next?
Back down to Devon tomorrow for a week or so before starting work in March.

Jo made some a couple of years ago - made 2 bottles which were excelent but....we were told that the fruit has to be discarded so did!!! Every other fruit we've used like cherries have been georgous to eat with the drink.

Nipped out and bought some 74% chocolate from Lidl, stoned the sloes with an olive stoner, chopped them up and added them to the chocolate, it's bloody delish !
Thanks for the inspiration @Shrimp (y)

One year I found some wild Plums and made Plum Gin, last year I made Blackberry Gin, as well as the Sloe Gin, the Blackberries were good on ice cream!
Well done Jockaneezer. I used Lidl choc too-52% Noir Dessert from a French Lidl.

Just had a thought, you could use some of the stoned fruit in a fruit cake!
Boozy cake!

Ok call me a Heathen but what's a bloody sloe?

And how do you stone it?

Never liked gin

But that chocolate gets my vote

Sloes are the fruit of the Blackthorn bush, used mainly in hedges as they have wicked thorns!
Sloe Gin is not like Gin really, after several months of having Sloes and sugar in it, it comes out like a liqueur!
Very nice slightly warmed on a very cold day.
‘Stoning’ a fruit means removing the stone!
I’m sure you’ve heard that before.
