Wine Update

wineI just put our 5th jug of wine in the basement, and they looked so nice all lined up that I took a picture. So far this year we’ve made a batch each of dandelion, strawberry, sour cherry, raspberry, and blueberry. On my walk today after supper, I happened upon some chokecherry trees with a lot of fruit, and tried a handful. The flavor of chokecherry is not for everyone to be sure, but this year’s berries tasted juicer and sweeter than I remember. So, in consultation with Alice, the decision was made to pick some chokecherries tomorrow and get batch number 6 started.
