I froze some for a few hours last Saturday, then let them thaw and added 1lb of sloes to 1/2lb sugar and 1.5ltrs of 'cheap gin'.
As I say, first time, so we'll see how it turns out at Christmas

I live in Cornwall, and If I waited till the first frost to pick the berries there would be hardly any left! I do wait untill they have lost the dusty whiteish covering though! I normally pick in the end of Oct, and I dont bother freezing them. Just prick em and stuff em in the jars
I've made a few batches now (although none last year as the berries failed) Had one that had a bit too much sugar for my liking, and I still have some from 2 years ago in a nice crystal decanter, waiting for the cold days Does remind me of Veno's though!!
