Homemade Apple and Blackberry Gin - Recipe, Handmade Christmas Idea


Homemade Apple and Blackberry Gin - Recipe, Handmade Christmas Idea



Thank you all for all the lovely feedback on the boxes I shared with you yesterday designed to hold bottles of my homemade Apple and Blackberry Gin. I am so pleased you liked the box and that lots of you are looking forward to me sharing the recipe with you today.

If you missed yesterday's post, click HERE to see just how I made the box.

Well, as promised here is the recipe and it really is super simple.



Ingredients:

2 large Bramley Apples
200g/8oz Blackberries
200g/8oz Caster Sugar
70cl Gin

This video shows exactly how to make it

The gin takes about 4 weeks to develop so you do need to plan ahead a little but it is really worth it. 

So warming, sticky and yummy.

The first time I made this it was because we didn't get many sloes one year and it has now completely replaced the Sloe Gin in my affecion!

I hope you give it a go - let me know what you think.

  4. Thanks so much Caroline for sharing this recipe, can't wait to give it a go! I was wondering if you have ever changed the fruit, like raspberries perhaps? It will be lovely either way and especially in those pretty boxes you made for this purpose!

    1. I've only ever tried with these fruit and I've made sloe gin before but I don't see why it wouldn't work with raspberries. If you do give it a go, let me know how you get on.
