Ingredients: 1 pear (red, if possible)
4 red apples
120g dried pears or dried apples
1 litre decent quality gin
3 fresh rosemary sprigs (optional) How To Make: Core and slice the pear and apples and put with the dried fruit in a large sterilised jar (see Know-how). Pour the gin over the fruit, seal the jar and give it all a good shake. Store in a cool, dark place for 7-10 days – the longer you leave it the darker and more intensely flavoured it will be. Strain the gin into 3 x 250ml sealable bottles. Insert a sprig of fresh rosemary, if you like. Seal and decorate with festive ribbons. ENJOY!
