Sloe Berries, Cliff Road, Blackwood, Caerphilly County Borough 16 October 2015
Sloe (Prunus spinosa) berries. Many years ago, we decided to make sloe gin (I can't explain why, we dislike gin) and went out into the countryside to collect berries. Unfortunately there was a hole in the bag and we left a trail of sloe berries behind us, Hansel & Gretel fashion. After the berries had steeped in the gin, doing nothing for the taste, we tried to make sloe gin chocolate with the fruit. This too, was a disaster. Since then, we've just admired the berries on the bush.
