A side of Scotland's finest ready to go in the smoker for about 18 hours. It's just had 12 hours curing in sea salt, brown sugar, orange peel & a wee dram.

It's Scottish Farmed I'm afraid, wild salmon is VERY expensive over here, I can only sell so many kidneys

I've just put 4litres of Sloe gin down, that should be ready for Christmas. Sloes are poor this year due to the cold spring.

Put it down where? Kerny mustn't be about - 'cos you could put nothing down...

Sloes had a hard year here too, as did their cousins the plums. I had a modest patch of sloes in the garden which had formed an impenetrable thicket. I removed them this summer, saving only a nicely shaped stem. The "shillelagh" of lore is traditionally made from blackthorn so I might fettle it into something next winter when it has seasoned. You never know when a decent knobkerrie might come in handy!

Sloes were poor here as well I'm afraid. However, curiously we had a bumper crop of damsons - so it's "damson gin" this Christmas!!!

Have you got any spare damsons? I've been on a mission to find some this year, but without success!
