How To Make Orange and Banana Wine

Homemade Wine Recipe

Ingredients: Orange and Banana Wine

10 oranges
1 lb / 450 grams bananas (including skins)
1/2 lb / 225 grams raisins
1/2 pint strong black tea
3 lb / 1,350 grams sugar
Water up to 1 gallon
Yeast nutrient
Wine yeast

Method - What to Do

Squeeze the juice from the peeled oranges and place with the remainder of the fruit, minus the pith, together with the chopped bananas and raisins, in a fermentation bucket. Add the sugar and pour in three quarters of the water, almost boiling, stirring vigorously to dissolve the sugar. Place the orange peel and a quart of water in a saucepan and simmer to 30 minutes. Add to the fermentation bucket and when cool add the pectin enzyme, strong tea, yeast nutrient and wine yeast and leave to ferment for seven days. 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.
