Found this site looking for a prune plum wine. I have many plums and wondered if anyone had made one? I have searched the forums and found nothing on actual prune plum wine...Interested if anyone would like to amuse me. I am drying them at the moment but have another huge bucket full to process. I do like wine. Cheers tam
@Ava_Sinclair , glad you bumped this thread. I was making wine from Cali grapes every season with just very basic knowledge handed down from family.
Ran into a problem that was just too specific to google. Ended up stumbling upon WMT and it has been a lifesaver in terms of troubleshooting specific issues.
I have lots of various peppers growing in the garden, Jalapeno's, Black Hungarians, Sweet Banana's, and Quadrato D'Asti Giallo Bell Peppers. They are all heirlooms. I figured outside of giving them away, using them in cooking, relish's, and salsa's I should be able to make wine with them.
I asked my Motorola Droid via Google for Pepper Wine Recipes. I found a few places first and I eventually came upon WMT. The first site I hit said to put Jalapeno's in a jar and then fill the jar up with rum. It works similar to adding vinegar to a bottle full of Tabasco peppers. Not my idea of wine, but it does sound interesting. It takes about 10 days to be ready.
I made Jalapeno wine using Jack Keller's web site: http://winemaking.jackkeller.net/reques32.asp and I also made (once) garlic wine. I believe he has other recipes for different spices &/or peppers. It shouldn't be hard to substitute ingredients.
In my winemakers recipe handbook there is a recipe for onion wine. I have not made it but in the book they say not to tell friends what they are drinking until they drink some. It is a surprising wine and can be used for marinating meats. I grow garlic so that might be something to try one season.
