    Advice needed foody peeps - just been rambling about around Jennycliff and Bovisand and have a bagful of green hazels foraged en route. Trouble is I dont know what to do with them now. Googling has given me mixed results and my OH seems to think that a person will get belly ache if they eat them. Are they any good, do I need to keep them/dry them/roast them? Help. Also noticed a lot of sloe bushes with no sloes this year - could be a tragedy in the making for my sloe gin production.

    No. Not at all.
    Just scoff the lot. I adore them and cn munch on the things until the cows come home.
    Send them to me at Belle Towers if you don't want them.
    BTW loads of sloes in our paddocks.
     
  3. EAT THEM!
    Lovely crunchy little mouthfuls. The squiggles get our cobnuts too quickly!

    I just found that the sloes I had my eye on in the park opposite have been so savagely pruned the sloes have all gone! [​IMG] Disaster!
