Wine galore

August 5, 2011

I have now made and bottled some of my elderflower wine, I also still have one more demi john of elderflower to bottle, just seems to be taking a little longer than the others!!

I have also used the cherries I picked in my sisters garden to make some jam , but also another demijohn of wine that has cleared to make a fabulous dark rose wine…. just waiting for the ferment to finally finish so I can bottle that!!

In addition to this in the last week I have started carrot wine, from the boiled carrots water from which I made soup with the vegetables left!  I have also started tea wine using happiness tea (hibiscus flower, cardamom, rosemary) and also some beetroot wine, which I have to keep dark in order for it to be stable in colour so fingers crossed for that one!

In case anyone is interested I get all my wine recipes from one book – CJJ Berry First Steps in Winemaking!
