There were a few left and they were really ripe and a little bit frosted.
Oh but the pain!
Look at my poor hand. Ouch!
That is enough for three little bottles of gin. I don't follow a recipe my nan always did it in thirds - 1 third gin, 1 third sloes and 1 third sugar. I do it by eye splitting the bottle into thirds. I also put them in the freezer over night so that the skin splits and then I pop them in the bottle - no needle pricking for me thanks.
I walked back to the woodland playground to find the others.
Everything after that looked a bit prickly...but it will be worth it when it is done.
Can you see Layla there? The white hen, both Poppy and Layla are still laying eggs which we expected to have dropped off by now so I shall be getting Christmas cake ingredients ready this week and five of those lovely eggs would be perfect.
