    Default Tomato Wine


    I haven't posted this in quite a while but Google finds it copied to
    quite a few sites.

    This is an interesting way to use up a few extra pounds of tomatoes.
    The recipe came from a CT neighbor in 1966.

    Delana's Tomato Wine

    6 lb. sugar
    6 lb. tomatoes, washed and chopped
    1 lb. raisins
    6 oranges, washed and cut up (skins included)
    1 gal. boiling water
    1 pkg. Yeast

    In a clean crock or food-safe new plastic bucket, mix together
    the first 5 ingredients. When the mixture has cooled to
    lukewarm, add yeast and stir well. Cover loosely and
    stir well daily for 15-20 days or until fermentation stops.
    Strain, filter, and bottle.

    This keeps for years and ages very well to a smooth-sipping sherry-like
    flavor.

    I would rather drink day old Ripple, I don't even like tomato juice. Now
    dewberry wine is fine.
