    I’m seeing a lot of gorgeous fruit flavoured spirits and cocktails popping up – FIY (Forage It Yourself) I guess :). Hope you and bump are keeping well!

    We have these “plum” trees which seem to grow like crazy here in the Northwest United States. Not sure what they call them, but they look almost exactly like the fruit you have pictured here – and they are absolutely delicious. I have a sack of them from the end of summer in the freezer (I couldn’t stand to see them go to waste!). Now they are going be reincarnated as infused vodka. Thanks for the idea and the recipe!

      Glad to be able to give you some ideas! As well as using the damsons for vodka, I also froze a stash and made some fantastic damson jam a couple of weeks ago. Well worth a try as well.
