How To Make Turnip Wine

Homemade Wine Recipe

Ingredients: Turnip Wine

4 lb / 1,800 grams turnips
3 lb / 1,350 grams sugar
1 lemon
1 orange
Water up to 1 gallon
Yeast nutrient
Wine yeast

Method - What to Do

Scrub, thinly slice the turnips and boil until just tender. Place the sugar into a fermentation bucket and strain the turnip liquor over it, stirring well to dissolve the sugar. When cool add the lemon juice, orange juice, yeast nutrient and wine yeast. Cover and leave for four days in a warm place, stirring daily. Strain through a fine sieve and put liquid 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.
