I have just bottled the first of the demijons of redcurrant wine made out of my allotment's fruit. Gorgeous. It has a great flavour. I recommend it to the rest of you. I am enjoying a half glass as as I sit at the computer. Why not a full glass, you ask? Easy, I have to do some tutoring tonight, and I suspect the client is teetotal.

Four pounds of red currants, pressed to get the juice out, two pounds of sugar, top up with water. Use a red wine yeast. Apply the normal wine making procedure. It took about three weeks to be ready, but how long you want to keep it for is up to you.
