How To Make Honeysuckle Flower Wine

Homemade Wine Recipe

Ingredients: Honeysuckle Flower Wine

2 pints honeysuckle blossoms (flowers NOT berries, as berries are poisonous)
3 lbs / 1,350 grams granulated sugar
2 oranges
1/2 lb / 225 grams raisins
2 teaspoons acid blend
1 teaspoon pectic enzyme
1 teaspoon tannin (or cup of black tea)
1 teaspoon yeast nutrient / energiser
Wine yeast
8 pints / 1 gallon cooled boiled water
1 campden tablet

Method - What to Do

Carefully wash the honeysuckle flowers in cold water and transfer to clean, empty winemaking fermentation bucket. Add all of the cooled, boiled water and the other ingredients, except for the wine yeast. Stir the wine mixture well until all of the sugar has completely dissolved. Allow to stand for around 12 hours and then add the activated wine yeast. Stir every morning and evening for around four days and then strain thoroughly, transferring to a sterilised wine demijohn with airlock.

Rack the honeysuckle flower wine after approximately six weeks, when the fermentation will have slowed dramatically. Rack a further two to three times over the next year, until clear. Bottle the honeysuckle flower wine and drink after at least six months, preferably longer.
