Sloe and Crabby with a Beautiful View
We have picked even more sloes along the canal path. We will be making more sloe gin as a break from our ginger beer. I will also then have more pits to crack and take the centers out to use to make almond flavoring. (Who would have thought almond flavoring was made from fruit pits. Not me.)
While out on the path we also picked crab apples and will be using the juice to make a ginger/apple beer and some juice to enjoy in the morning. I also picked some larger crab apples to use with some of my reduced apples to make applesauce. The larger crab apples are from a regular apple tree that has gone back to the stock tree that was grafted to (often a crab apple.)
And for family members, yes we did say Hello to John.
