I only make this every few years as we don't get through it all that fast but this year we are due a top up. I shall be using the recipe from here There is no need to prick the skins- if you freeze them the berries break down of their own accord and you can process them at your leisure.

Being a lover of all things left over and inspired by the champagne jelly recently made on The Great British Bake Off I believed this week that I had come up with an original idea for making sloe gin jelly.

Finally there's no need to sling the gin infused berries when they've done their job- they can be utilised further to make slider
