We tried "lemon wine" at the cheese-making course, so at least I'd tried a fermented beverage. We will go to another course to learn how to make this kind of fermented food when it comes to Murgon in Feb/March 2012, but I decided to try a recipe in Nourishing Traditions in the meantime. Of course I also tried to modify it, as there wasn't exactly a recipe for lemon wine, more orange wine, but we had heaps of lemons from the neighbour's tree (two shopping bags) and a few mandarins that were on sale.
I juiced all the lemons and mandarins and ended up with:
- 1.5 L lemon juice
- 0.5 L mandarin juice
I added 1/2 cup of raw sugar to 1.5 L warm water and 0.5 L whey from cottage cheese and stirred it all into the lemon/orange juice.
