Carrot Whisky / Carrot Wine!

Enjoy this Christmas Season with Carrot Wine!!!

Wine makes every meal an occasion, every table more elegant, every day more civilized. ~ Andre Simon, "Commonsense of Wine"




Ingredients:

Carrot -3kg
Orange -2 nos
Lime -2 nos
Sugar -2kg
Raisins -300 gms (chopped)
Whole wheat - 1/2 kg
Water -5 liter
Yeast - 1 tbsp

Method:

  • Clean & chop the carrots and boil with 5 liters of water.
  • Transfer this to a bharani or a big glass bottle and add lime & orange juice & peel. (Cut the orange & lime in half, and extract the juice, using a citrus fruit juicer. Remove the orange peel and scrape off any white pith from the inside. Chop up the peel and mix it with the carrot mixture).
  • Then add sugar. When the mixture becomes cool, add raisins, whole wheat and yeast.
  • Tie the bottle with a clean cloth and keep aside the mixture for 3 weeks.
  • Stir this mixture everyday for 5 minutes.
  • After 3 weeks strain the mixture to a clean bottle and keep this mixture again for 3 more weeks untouched.
  • After that slowly strain the upper part to small bottles and use.
  • The peach colour of this wine will change to a richer whisky colour with aging!



Note:
  • All the utensils & bottle should be clean & dry. If there is water the wine will become sour.
  • Don't fill the bottle to the brink. Always leave 1/4 bottle empty.

  9. Hello Swapna!!! I found your wonderful blog through Maria's blog when I was looking for homemade wine recipe. This carrot wine recipe is darn tempting!!! The clicks are awesome too. Now, I am planning to make carrot whisky/wine ASAP but the only problem is we dont get whole wheat here in Australia, instead we get cracked wheat - burgul. So please tell me whether I can use cracked wheat instead of whole wheat?

  11. Thanks Swapna for your reply!!

    Finally, after an intensive bit of Googling, I've been able to purchase couple of Kgs of whole wheat!!! :) So, will soon give this carrot whisky a go!! By the way, Date wine is already fermenting, which I hope will come out great too!!
    Thanks for your inspiring words!!
    Cheers,

    Arti

  18. Hi Swapna, im staying in a remote place where we don't get oranges. I've got lemons though. So can I substitute orange juice for oranges? Or can I just leave them out? Or do I increase the amount of lemons? Anxiously waiting for your reply! The carrot s r ready! !

  19. hi

    other recipes asking to strain the liquid in 2nd stage.
