Hedgerow Gin: How to Make Your Own
I am sharing the combination I made. Each batch of Hedgerow Gin is personal so I’d say use what is available in your area and what you fancy. I envy those you who can really go meandering about the hedgerows, putting together a wonderful wild blend!
- 8 ounces Italian Prune Plums , halved and pitted
- 8 ounces mixed hedge berries (red raspberries, golden raspberries, blackberries)
- Pinch of Rosehips
- 2 cups Gin
- 1 ½ cups Granulated Sugar
Place all ingredients in a wide mouth glass jar with sealing lid.
Turn the jar up and down weekly to disperse the sugar in the liquid. Place in a dark pantry or cupboard for a year. And if you can’t wait a year, taste it after 3 months and then decide if you are ready to drink it or leave it be! When ready to consume, pour liquid through a sieve or filter and retain the fruits to eat.
