Homemade Wine Recipe
Ingredients: Parsnip and Date Wine
5 lb / 2,250 grams parsnips
2 lb / 900 grams dates
1 lb / 450 grams bananas
3 lb / 1,350 grams sugar
1/2 oz / 14 grams citric acid
1/2 pint strong black tea
Water up to 1 gallon
Method - What to Do
Scrub, slice and boil the parsnips until tender. Place the chopped dates, bananas, and sugar in a fermentation bucket. Strain parsnips into the bucket and stir vigorously to dissolve the sugar. When cool add the cold tea, citric acid, yeast nutrient and wine yeast. Cover and leave for seven days in a warm place, stirring 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.
