A few pics above taken yesterday at Oldgate bridge. Three fine Goosanders and many Mallard but otherwise quiet. The title refers to the home-made Fruit and nut chocolate taken from an old hedgerow recipe book. Last night I was straining the last of the Sloe gin ready for early next year but its a shame to waste the gin soaked Sloes once they've done their job. This is where the old recipe book comes in handy and once you've taken out the stones , melt some chocolate and throw in the Sloes and almonds, let it set...delicious.
