True but we were talking about improving cheese. Most food can be improved by wrapping steak round it and as you so rightly point out, that includes steak.

My friend makes his own sloe gin, and very nice it is too....very warming. He does other fruit gins too, a particular favourite of mine is damson....lovely stuff! :drunken:

I was never a fan of gin till a few years back we were given a small bottle of sloe gin at Christmas and loved it. So I started to do my own and also some pear vodka :shock: But the best I have done is blueberry gin, its so tasty and moreish. You just use the sloe gin recipe but I put a slash in the blueberry's and leave for at least 9 months. :cheers:

Hi
Phil made his own sloe gin with minimal sugar and hated my much more syrupy recipe.

I think will try the blueberry recipe

Hi George, to 1 lt of gin I used 200 grams of sugar and 3 large packs of blueberry's from the supermarket. Use a sharp knife and slash in to the berry.
After about 6 months check and if you want it sweeter add more sugar. When you bottle it keep the berries and add red wine to them and leave for 6 months. It makes a nice drink to. And then after that, have them with ice cream.

On the subject of distilled beverages my mind drifts back to a few trips to Germany whilst in the employ of Her Majesty :salute: .
Such things as Apphelkhorne did wonders especially after a few steins of Warstraminer or a drop or two of Asbach added to some local sparkling wine :drunken: .
On the 'mothers ruin' front I'm partial to long cold Bombay Sapphire with a slice of lime or sprig of fresh mint leaves on a nice summer evening \:D/ . A nice Dows Tawny port goes down well too accompanied with a morsel or two of a decent Blue Stilton or similar with Carr's Water Biscuits.
All in moderation of course. :grin: :grin: :grin:
