CITRUS WINE

Ingredients:

1 lb. raisins

3 grapefruit

3 lemons

3 oranges

3 1⁄2 lb. sugar

Yeast; yeast nutrient

1 gallon water

 

Method:

Firstly peel the fruit (do not squeeze the skins or include any white pith) keeping

the peel as intact as possible so it can be retrieved easily later. Put water into a crock and

add the chopped-up fruit and sugar, stirring thoroughly to dissolve the latter. Then add the

yeast and yeast nutrient, cover closely, and leave in a warm place (about 70 degrees F.)

for a fortnight, stirring daily. At the end of this period take out the peel and, having

strained off the liquor, squeeze out the fruit pulp and add the resultant juice to the bulk.

Put into fermenting jar and fit trap, and leave to ferment out. Siphon it into clean bottles

when it has done so.
