COUNTRY WINEMAKING DOESN'T STOP DURING WINTER
Yesterday's Daily Mail published a request for information on making wine at home from fruit and vegetables. This hobby (or I prefer to call it a craft) has been a favourite pastime for many of us who like to know exactly what goes into our food and beverages.
My favourite monthly magazine HOME FARMER is probably the only self-sufficiency journal of its kind which gives valuable help and advice on growing and using our own home-grown food. My regular literary contribution covers how to make all kinds of wine and beverages and my articles concentrate on each month of the year. Currently, you can learn how to make both Parsnip wine and a super variation of Celery wine. I feel the most important aspects of home fermentation are imagination, cleanliness and patience - to allow your wines to mature in good storage conditions.
