I bought my scrummy eife a metal detector for christmas and in return she digs holes in the patio. She found an old oil tin. It must have been there a while as it was well below the level of the top soil.

Raspberry wine

Last years attempts at strawberry wine didn't go too well as it had a rather bitter after taste. This year I am trying raspberry wine. The recipe is nice and simple:
1 pound of raspberries
1 pound of sugar
1 pint of water
1 sachet of yeast

Put raspberries in blender. Add eveything to demijohn and leave. It started to ferment within 30 minutes.

That's half the normal amount of water from other recipes. My plan is to keep addung sugar until it won't ferment any more. That should hopefully give a sweet itence wine, almost like a liquor.
