OK, so I’ve picked about 2kg of sloes. They’re in the freezer at the moment. Made some before a couple of years ago with some good results, but I wanted to try some variants this year. In the past I’ve used caster sugar to sweeten, along with a couple of cinnamon sticks. I was thinking of using demerara sugar this time. Any recommendations? What tastes good?
Last years batch I made using the goodhousekeeping recipe. It said to add a few drops of vanilla essence, it was a great success, you did get a suptle hint of vanilla. This year I will be making it with vanilla sugar. Put a couple of vanilla pods in a large jar of sugar, hey pretso vanilla sugar after a month.
