Sloe berries

There seem to be many Sloe berries in the hedgerows this year. 
The berries resemble a small plum. They can be used for making jams and chutneys but are very sharp. Apparently they are less tart of picked after a frost but I usually find they have shrivelled by this time you can collect them now and freeze them.
