Raisin Wine

Raisin wine is a popular brew for Passover. To make it you will need a large stone crock or glass jar that holds at least 3 quarts, some cheesecloth, about 4 bottles, and 4 corks. When making wine, always sterilize all utensils.

ingredients

makes 2 quarts
1 pound seedless raisin
1 stick cinnamon
2 cups sugar lumps
1 lemon
6 cups boiling water

method

1. Chop the raisins or grind them in a food processor. Put them into the crock along with the cinnamon stick and sugar lumps. Slice the lemon, removing any seeds, and add to the jar.

2. Pour boiling water over the contents of the crock and stir until the sugar dissolves.

3. Cover the crock with cheesecloth. Keep in a cool, dark place and stir once a day for 1 week.

4. Strain the wine through cheesecloth, then bottle and cork it. Keep bottles in a cool, dark place for at least 3 weeks before drinking. Keeps indefinitely.

This is a great wine - very thick though but it's really good with lemonade. Will make it again.
