Set aside a batch, thanks for posting the recipe, I used sweet white wine and a lot less sugar, figured I can always add more sugar later.

Oh Sara, those are beautiful ! Thanks for the picture, Himself was looking at this and told me to get out and start picking ! LoL !

 

You know I was pondering the "putting away time " as Aurora suggested, Seal tight and put it away in a cool dry place 4 around 6 wks.

 

This isn't a " canning " type seal is it ?? I don't think so, it's just seal your jar tight while the berries and wine are infusing, yes ?

 

I think it would be something fun to brood over during a Moon phase, too !

Yes, thats right, just screwed those lids on really tight. Those are repurposed glass peanutbutter jars. Really big wide mouthed ones. This will alas only make a bottle of wine.

 

But it takes a lot of strawberries and gets very expensive to brew a gallon or even five gallons of strawberry wine! (5 lbs per gallon!) I am going to stick to huckleberry and blackberry which I can get for free and apple cider and plum wines when the fruits are about sixty cents a pound.

  • 3 weeks later...

Mine looked good to go after only four weeks. It is bottled and in the fridge, should be pleasant 4th of July treat. Also I did a u-pick of strawberries a dollar a pound, so I did make some country wine. Next up is Huckleberry and then Blackberry.

This recipe would work with any kind of berry, right? I love the thought of the strawberry wine but I have some raspberries and blackberries I need to use up and this would be a great way to do it.

 

Now to hunt down some jars...
