Rhubarb Wine.

This fall I had so much rhubarb left over and I found an old rhubarb wine recipe my mother had written on paper.Well, I thought I would try making it. Very simple and easy.
I put it in my, what they call in this house, butler's pantry and forgot about it.
Yesterday, I was in the pantry and there it sat, three gallons of my wine. So I took one gallon out to check and it looked clear. I want to tell you, it is wonderful.
Tomorrow, I will write the recipe on the blog, for those that would like to try it..It is a very smooth and not too sweet of a wine.
It is very rewarding to make your own things, like jam/jellies. At least this way, you know what you are eating.
Rhubarb comes every spring and I look forward to getting it..right now, it is buried under snow, but won't be for long..
Till next time, keep looking up.

My mom makes a great rhubarb sauce that we enjoy every summer. :) I agree, its so rewarding to make your own things. I'm anxious for spring to give it a try in my *own* garden this year!

My grandfather used to make his own wine in his basement. I think he may have made a batch of rhubarb. I know the rhubarb and asparagus were always growing in excess in his garden. I'm going to have to come back tomorrow to read your recipe! :)

Wow, I'd very much be interested in that recipe. Do you think you could use frozen rhubarb? I have some stashed in my freezer...
