The choice of fruit is up to you basically any hedgerow fruits can be used in this recipe. Use just a single fruit or a mixture of fruits, Wild Damsons, sloes,, elderberries,rosehips, blackberries,blueberries in fact any of the edible fruits that you find in the hedgerows. What you make now will not be ready for a year so it might be worth doing a couple of batches at a time. However if you want to eat the alcoholic fruit afterwards probably best not to put too many rosehips or haws in.
500g fruit of your choice either one blend or a mixture (but remember to keep notes on your recipe so if you find a combination that you particularly like you will be able to repeat it)
500ml of gin
1 litre clean dry wide necked jar with a screw top lid
Pack the fruit sugar and gin into the jar. Cover with cling film and then seal with the screwtop lid (stops any nasties getting in). Label the jar (very important as otherwise you will end up having a blind tasting - which can be interesting - I know I have done it) Pop in a cupboard with an even temperature and forget about it for a year.
When you are ready to try it pour off the spirit off the fruit (I pass this through a coffee paper filter) decant. This will leave you with alcoholic fruit. This can be served in small portions as a dessert with some cream, but if you don't fancy it discard it.
The longer the liqueur is kept the better the flavour, but if you can't wait for a year try it after about three months.
Serve in a glass with some amaretti or cantucci.
