How to Make Apple Wine
- Boil three litres of water in a large pot. Then leave to cool.
- Take a well washed, and completely dried and wiped porcelain or glass pot that has a lid.
- Pour the boiled and cooled water into the pot.
- Wash and pat dry all the apples. Cut the apples into half and remove the cores.
- All the apple flesh along with the skin into the pot. Discard the cores.
- Add the rest of the ingredients and stir well.
- Keep covered with the lid.
- For one week, you need to open the lid- once a day and stir with a long wooden spoon.
- Then tightly cover the lid and wrap the top portion with a thick cotton or muslin cloth.
- Again, for one week, just shake the pot in a steady circular clockwise motion- without opening the lid.
- Leave it to rest for a month in a place with no disturbance and that which is free from dust.
- After one month, open and strain the liquid into a large bowl. To strain, pour the liquid apple mix through a muslin cloth.
- Pour into sterilised glass bottles and serve as required.
Best if kept untouched and undisturbed in the glass or porcelain pot for a year or so. It matures well and gives a body to the wine. If you like to give a bit more rusty colour to your wine, replace one fourth of white sugar quantity with brown sugar.
