sloe gin, jam and anything else!

Haven't a clue what galangal is, or need to know what to use if you can't buy creme fraiche locally? We're sure our knowledgeable members will be able to point you in the right direction...

sloe gin, jam and anything else!

I have been picking loads of sloes in Dorset and wondered if any one has a recipe for sloes that doesn't involve alcohol or jam making?!!

Sloes

In a word - No. But I did read that once you have strained the sloes from the gin/vodka, you can stone them and then dip them in chocolate for after dinner treats. But then I don't suppose this helps you very much.

Actually, just found this link for Sloe Steam pudding.

There's not a lot else you can do, they are, as I am sure you know, incredibly sour and impossible to stone before cooking. What about sloe jelly?

Sloes

Might I suggest you taste a sloe before you waste your time, fuel and ingredients on trying to make anything with them. They are so astringent, they will pucker your mouth.
