Do you have a pet dog? A friend sent me an e-book, "Recipes for your Dog's diet and care". Quite a cute book. Since I dont have a pet dog, I would'nt be using it. If you would like a copy, do let me know and I'll happily mail it to you.
I have been enjoying making healthy homemade wines of late. The last one I tried was Aloe Wine and I simply loved it. This beet wine has a gorgeous colour and great taste. Check it out.
1/4cup seedless raisins
1/2 cup ginger juice
- Wash the beets, skin and cube them. Crush the spices in a mortar.
- Throw all ingredients into a wine jar. 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.

That's really beautiful wine. I used to make wines using fruits. They are sweet and really good. I don't let it ferment too long. I have to try with vegetables. Thanks very much for sharing.ReplyDelete
oh you made your own! And what a lovely colour as well.ReplyDelete
That wine is gorgeous. I've never attempted to make it. We do have a dog but she's diabetic so on a strict diet. That was sweet of your friend though.ReplyDelete
I can't believe you make your own wine! This sounds excellent!ReplyDelete
Great idea. My sister has a basement full of beets, she'll be happy to have this recipe. Sounds like a lot of fun.ReplyDelete
Lovely color. This looks like something fun to try. :)ReplyDelete
wow what a fun drink :-) great colorReplyDelete
Wow, this sounds really good. At first I thought you were going to say this beet wine was for them. hehe :)ReplyDelete
Wow, beetroot wine? Sounds and looks delicious...love the color of it :-) and you mention Aloe wine? So So interesting Shirley.ReplyDelete
Wow, this is very neat, I would love to try to make it, gorgeous!ReplyDelete
I love wine but I've been too overwhelmed to try making my own ... Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
What a coincidence! Yesterday, I told my husband about how I used to love beetroot wine made by my mom. Thanks for sharing the recipe, hopefully I'll make this soon.ReplyDelete
wow !! lovely colour... Will this wine ferment as there isnt any yeast added ? sorry but im new to this.. :)ReplyDelete
Good to see you! This wine does not require yeast since its prepared with jaggery. The jaggery helps to ferment. Feel free to ask if you have more queries.
Is there no water in this recipe? I was wondering that only 1/2 cup ginger juice is the liquid in this recipe so how much wine would this yield? Same with your aloe wine recipe. Please clarify.ReplyDelete
The jaggery and beetroot will breakdown to give the required liquid for the wine. The same with the aloe. The entire pulp will breakdown.
