The health benefits of Aloe Vera species of onion lily group, is very difficult to contain in any single post. We have been growing this species in all households of our family and use it for healing burns, scars, cuts and a lot more. But doubtlessly the use of Aloe in wine is simply the best! I got this recipe from my elder sis who has been preparing it over the years. The recipe by itself would sound simple to you, but cleaning the leaves and cutting the teeth is time consuming, the rest is easy.
- Wash clean the aloe leaves and cut of the teeth on the sides. Then cut into 1 inch bits.
- Throw into a wine jar and throw in roughly chopped jaggery. Close the lid tightly.
- Date the wine. Stir the mixture everyday for a week. Leave to ferment for 41 days from the day of preparation.
- Open and stir the wine and strain into a bottle with a muslin cloth.
