2 lb / 900 grams beetroot
2 lb / 900 grams carrots
1 lb / 450 grams raisins
1 lb / 450 grams fresh bananas, including skins
3 lb / 1,350 grams sugar
1 teaspoon citric acid
1/2 pint strong black tea
Water up to 1 gallon
Method - What to Do
Wash and chop the carrots and simmer until just tender. Wash and slice the beetroot and simmer until tender. Put the chopped fruits and sugar in the fermentation bucket and add the strained carrot and beetroot liquors. Stir vigorously to dissolve the sugar. When cool add the citric acid, strong tea, yeast nutrient and wine yeast. Cover and leave to ferment for seven days stirring daily. Using a fine sieve strain the liquid into a demijohn and use an airlock to seal the jar.
Store in a warm place and allow the fermentation to work. When fermentation has ceased, rack the wine into a clean jar and place in a cooler environment and leave for a further few months. When the wine is clear and stable siphon into bottles.
