The day that turned Into a drink ended up with Jura whiskey and my mates home made sloe gin . Not a great combination . You may know but the sloe or black thorn is a prunus which is part of the cherry family . Last year trees were hanging with them but not such a great crop this year . Damsons a plenty though .
Trying out Hugh, s haw sin recipe with the haws not done it before .
If it's crabs you want you have a far better chance of catching them in Ripley than Belper far better class of slapper .
