3 to 5 KGs raisins
1,500 grams sugar/ caramelized for color
1 gallon of water/ Almost 4 liters
Add cleaned ginger to a saucepan of boiling water and allow to simmer. Also add the oranges which are peeled and sliced, together with lemon zest and simmer for approximately 30 minutes. When it is luke-warm, add the yeast and leave overnight. Add diced raisins or dried grapes in the morning along with the dried red chilies. I make a spicy flavored ginger wine, its unique and savory…
Place everything in any suitable vessel as long as it is very clean. If you want your ginger wine to be red in color just add caramelized sugar syrup if the dried grapes do not give it sufficient colour.
A bottle of wine makes a wonderful gift. Whether you are going to a friend’s house for dinner or in need of a small holiday gift, a bottle of wine is always a nice touch.
