Spicy Sloe Gin

I have used a different recipe for this year's sloe gin ... it is from the brilliant book "A Slice of Organic Life" - this will be my first 'project' from the book!

2lbs sloes
zest of one orange and one lemon
teaspoon of honey
cinnamon stick
2cm ginger, sliced
6 cloves
bottle of gin

Crush the sloes with a rolling pin, or spoon and put into a large bottle/jar.  Add the other ingredients and cover with the gin. Store the jar somewhere dark and cool for 6-12 months ....

I have this book too - it's great. She's also brought out a Christmas one which I would like but think I'll wait until the Book People are doing it on special offer and start at the library.

Really? I'll have to keep an eye out for it!
