Kiwi Wine


How to make Kiwi Wine


As usual I am back after a long hiatus :D :D There are many things which kept me busy ignoring this space of mine. Now that many of my readers & friends started asking me why there are no updates here, I thought I have to find some time to spend here….. after all Christmas is around the corner, here is a wine recipe for all of you to try..… A friend of mine was requesting for this Kiwi Wine for the past several years… I made this wine almost a year back and with aging, the sweetness of this wine reduces significantly and become a very dry wine… So if you prefer sweet wine please add more sugar after fermentation…


Kiwi Wine

Ingredients:

Kiwi – 1 kg
Water – 3 ½ litre
Sugar – 1 kg (250 gm more if you prefer very sweet wine)
Yeast – ¾ tsp

Method:
  • Peel and mash kiwi with a potato masher.
  • Boil sugar & water and add boiled water to the mashed kiwi and mix well.
  • When the mixture becomes lukewarm add yeast and mix well and transfer the mixture into a sterilized bharani / bottle.
  • When the mixture cools down completely tie the bottle with a clean cloth or close with lid little loose.
  • Stir this mixture every day with a clean and dry spoon.
  • After 21 days, strain the mixture through a cheese/ muslin cloth in to a clean dry bottle. You can add more sugar at this time if you prefer sweeter wine.
  • Keep this again for 21 days untouched. After 21 days strain the wine again, pour it in to clean dry bottles and use.

Strawberry Wine & Celebrating 11 years of Food Blogging!


 How to make Strawberry Wine

11 years ago, through a very dear college friend of mine, I was introduced to the ocean of flood blogging. Since then it’s been a beautiful journey learning may other aspects of cooking, different cuisines and finally into cake decoration. Many fellow bloggers become very dear friends, I interacted with many lovely readers and was acknowledged by some leading publishers too…. I had never thought that a spontaneous decision to start a blog would bring me so far. It was all because of my dear readers whose continuous encouragement took me so far, whereas many fellow bloggers of that time have completely disappeared from the blogging field! Thank you so much for the love, support and trust you guys have given me…

I had planned to post this Strawberry Wine for New Year, but the first post of the year got delayed this far :D... I made this wine exactly a year ago, that’s how I got this crystal clear colour. When you make the wine it will be really red in colour but with aging the colour changes like this one has…. It’s Strawberry season in this part of the world and it’s a really good wine, so try to make use of those beautiful strawberries while it is in season!
