How To Make Marigold Wine

Homemade Wine Recipe

Ingredients: Marigold Wine

2 quarts marigold heads
4 lb / 1,800 grams sugar
1 lb / 450 grams chopped raisins
Citric acid
1/2 pint strong black tea
Water up to 1 gallon
Yeast nutrient
Wine yeast

Method - What to Do

Gather the marigolds in full sunlight and only the golden petals should be used. Pour the boiling water into a fermentation bucket and add the sugar, stirring vigorously until dissolved. Add the chopped raisins and cover. When cool add the crushed flower heads, citric acid and cold tea. Add the yeast nutrient and wine yeast and cover and leave for five days, stirring twice daily. Strain through a fine sieve and put into a demijohn and fit 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. When the wine is clear and stable siphon into bottles.
