Thus far i have made:
1. Damson gin. Very easy and, hopefully, very tasty.
Just prick each damson three times with a folk (it doesn't have to be three, but this is the number of time i pricked each one). Fill a 2 litre bottle a third full with damsons, a third with sugar and a third with gin. Leave in a cool dark place for a few months or as long as possible (or till christmas!) and then strain. Yum, i can't wait to drink this! Hopefully some will make it to the hampers.....i'll have to be good.
2. Plum chutney. I used this recipe here.
3. More of my plum jam (see previous post of details). Yummy yum yum.
I have put a lot of plums in the freezer as they wouldn't have lasted much longer. I'll probably make these into jam. I also have a massive bag of damsons left, but what do i do with them? More gin? (i quite like this idea!), jam? or something different?
I need to think of something as i don't want to waste them. I'll have to do some research. What would you do? Help!
