    Easy to follow spiced wine recipe

    A fruit wine that takes 21 days to make

    29w ago


    With "how to make alcohol at home" searches soaring all over the internet during lockdown, I thought it was only fair to try making some myself.

    When thinking about homemade alcohol, my grandmother instantly came to mind, as she always used to boast about the wine her sisters and she made back in the day. They made wine from almost everything: plum, betel leaves, figs, dates, and much more.

    Here is one of the most basic recipes she taught me. I just had to share it...


    Red wine is rich in antioxidants that are present in grapes, which may help to lower the risk of heart diseases and stroke. It also protects our skin and has anti-ageing characteristics. And in women, it helps reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

    Although the wait is way too long, it is definitely worth a try.

    • Another region another methodology. I will try it and I will post a recipe for a Czech fruit wine someday.
