Racked our Black Currant wine made from Vintners Harvest Fruit base today, it is really nice, a flavor all it's own.
We went to our old stomping grounds one day last week and stopped at a Food Co-op that we still belong to...They had dried Currants for $1.50/pound....they looked really nice.....
Has anyone any experience with using dried Currants to make wine?????
Would it work???
How many would it take per gallon????
They didn't know if they had any oil or anything else to preserve them....[after Waldo's experience with oil on fruit...I hesitated]. They buy in bulk and those had been weighted and packaged by the volunteers that work there.
They also had Vanilla Beans packaged at 3/$1.50...got to read more Posts about adding Vanilla Beans to wine....like which wines
and how many to add
They had dried Cherries for $5.99/# and dried Blueberries for $8.99/#...think Sam's Club might beat those prices....
Will be heading back down there at some point this spring...so will consider them again.
