Well despite promises to the contrary I evidently still haven't got a full and proper post up here yet - Doh! Hey ho - no time to hark on about that now or this post may go the same way!
Shake the jar like your very best 'dad' dancing style personal disco just rolled into town and stick it in a dark cupboard. Shake again at the very least once a week for another 2-3 months - the more shakin' goin' on the more taste you'll get from your sloes. Strain off and taste, taste again then taste again. Do the sugar thang and enjoy. :-)
