3 lb / 1,350 grams rhubarb
3 lb / 1,350 grams sugar
Water up to 1 gallon

Method - What to Do

Cut the rhubarb into small pieces and place in a container with the prunes. Cover with cold water and add one campden tablet. After 24 hours add 1 lb. sugar and stir well to dissolve. Add the yeast nutrient and wine yeast and cover and leave for five days, stirring daily to mash the fruit well. Add the remainder of the sugar, stir well to dissolve and leave for another five days, 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.
