    Potato Wine

    Strangely as it may seem, a very nice wine can be made with potatoes When potatoes are being dug, put aside the little ones that are too small for cooking as they answer very well for this purpose.

    1/2 gallon small Potatoes
    3 lb Demerara Sugar
    1 gallon Water
    2 juicy Lemons
    rind of 3 Oranges

    Time: 45 minutes Temperature: boiling


    Scrub the potatoes thoroughly clean. If they are very small, cut them in halves, if larger into quarters, but do not peel them. If large ones are used, measure them after they are cut. Put them in a boiler with the water, bring to the boil, then boil gently for fifteen minutes. Meanwhile, slice the lemons and put them in an earthenware pan large enough to hold the liquid, add the orange rinds and 3 lb of demerara sugar. Strain the potato liquuor and pour it on the lemons, etc. Return it to the boiler and boil gently for half an hour. Then strain it through muslin into a pan. Leave until cold, then bottle and cork securely. It will be ready in a fortnight, but improves with keeping
    You will need 1lb sultanas to give it body and umpphh and also yeast for it to ferment. 2 month is the approx fermenting time it usually takes. When bottled and left to mature it is a wine with a sherry taste up there with the best.

    You are replying to a 14 year old post I can't even remember posting. I don't recall trying it but wonder whether anyone else did?
