    'Clearing the freezer out' wine = random bags of chopped rhubarb, raspberries, redcurrants and cherry-plums. Didn't weigh them. Poured boiling water over them, about 3litres, added a teaspoon of pectolase and left for 24 hours. Then dissolved 2lb of sugar in another litre of boiling water and stirred it into the fruit. Added a tsp of yeast nutrient and a tsp of yeast, gave it a stir, and we'll see what happens. It may need a bit of grape juice adding for 'vinosity', but won't know til I strain it into a demijohn.
