Can wine be made from cilantro? I haven't found any recipes...
No need for a recipe. First sterilize all equipment before you use it! I juice the cilantro, add to boiling water, add sugar till its just the right sweetness, I like it a little sweeter than my koolaid. Then i pour the solution in a warm empty wine bottle that I sterilized by boiling. I cover the bottle lid with foil while it cools. Let cool! This is critical! Cool to room temp is fine. No warmer than 80f no cooler than 55f. After cooling, remove foil, add wine yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae). Then put on airlock, ferment for 7-14 days in a dark, room temp place. After time is up, remove airlock. Double boil to kill the yeast and any other microbes. Foil the top again while it cools, boil your cork to sterilize it. After your bottle of fermented wine is done cooling again, cork it and let sit upright for 3 days in fridge, 55f preferable but not mandatory. After 3 days store wine on cork to age as long as you want. 1 year preferred age time. Or bottoms up and drink immediately.Can wine be made from cilantro? I haven't found any recipes...
