If you want to backsweeten with this recipe, make a syrup and keep it bottled in your preserves cupbd for later use..
6 lemons or grapefruit ( zest and juice) these are big homegrown lemons.
6 cups sugar and 6 cups water
1 tablespoon citric acid
place peel sugar and water in pan bring to boil, stir occasionally. add citric acid and allow to cool, when cool add juice of lemons, freeze leftovers.. or if you want to bottle it.. add lemon juice to hot syrup and seal in warmed jars. ( treat as bottling jams).
Allie, i can't wait to try the orange wine again. i really thought i had something going. It is important that anyone wanting to try wine with oranges, Gfruit, lemons, etc., know you MUST remove the thin white skin left behind after peeling.
The orange I FAILED was due directly from this "skin" be left on.
A day or so ago, someone brought up a lime wine request. Sounds just great to me. Even lemon wine would be great, but as you all know in Alaska it would cost me like 30 dollars to make agallon, probably more.
Glad to have others who have the availability of fruit. I don't have to make it myself, but I can sure be excited for you and follow your success.
Looking forward to seeing how Leannes Gfruit works out.
