i dont' know how old your baby it but after my little one was old enough to not be nursing seemingly constantly (one year-ish )I would strategize to have a glass of wine. once its out of your blood stream it is out of your milk also. so I felt comfortable with having a drink right after nursing when I knew she wouldn't be nursing or would even be asleep for a four or so hours. it can be a controversial subject though! unfortunatly some women would take some of the factual info and use it to justify drinking too much alcohol and would endanger their babies. but at the same time all the restrictions that are sometimes proposed by breastfeading fanatics is part of the reason that some women dont' choose to breastfeed. i suppose in this day an age common sense just can't rule.
As with other wild plum like fruits they are usually too bitter to eat raw, they benefit from gentle cooking with plenty of sugar to make an agreeable tart or pie.
Sloe and Apple Jelly
(for rabbit, hare and game)
A very simple recipe, measure out equal quantities of ripe sloes and green apples, place in a pan and cover with cold water. Cook until the fruits are soft; pour into a jelly bag and leave to drip for a few hours. Measure the juice. For every 1-pint or 600 ml of juice add 1lb or 500g of sugar. Bring to the boil stirring the sugar regularly. Boil hard until setting point is reached and pour into warm jars.
