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!

  • Boil the water and keep aside to cool down slightly to lukewarm. 
  • Wash the fresh strawberries well. Wipe water from each strawberry very well and chop it finely and keep aside. 
  • In a big bharani / bottle add sugar, chopped strawberries and lukewarm water, stir well. Sprinkle yeast on top and mix well after 5 minutes. 
  • When the mixture cools down completely tie the bottle with a clean cloth or close with lid little loose. 
  • Stir this mixture every day for 5 minutes with a clean and dry wooden spoon.

  2. You can add 100 GM's of whole wheat with 10 GM's cinnamon and 5 gms cloves to the above recipe. The wine ferments really well with it. It also lends good texture and overall taste of the wine.will definitely try with strawberry.

  4. Hello Swapna
    I am in process of Strawberry wine
    2 kg Strawberry
    4 litre of Water and I added 3 kg of sugar
    But after 5 days I found its too sweet is it because of extra sugar (3kg) is it OK or how can I lessen the sweetness, it's still 5 days now

    1. According to my recipe for 2kg strawberry you need 8 litres of water and 2.5kg sugar. You only added half of water and more sugar!! Please follow the recipe when you are making it! Sweetness definitely reduces while the wine ages but in your case I don't think so.... Either you can make another batch with less sugar and mix it both or you can add boiled and cooled water to this batch, but I am not sure if the wine becomes bad or not! Anyways Good luck!
