If you can get your hands on some damsons in autumn, it is well worth making this delicious warming treat for the winter months. Normally damson vodka would need at least three months to infuse but cooking it at a low temperature speeds up this process to three hours!
The vodka can be drunk straight away but gets better with time – it’s best to forget about it for a year or so!
This method will work for most fruits and berries; try blackberries, raspberries, sloes or blackcurrants.
For extra flavour you could also add herbs to the damsons such as rosemary or thyme.
