Elderberry Blossom Wine

Author/Submitted by: Depression Era Recipes, Patricia R. Wagner, Carolyn Shaw (5-95)
Servings: 1
Categories: Alcoholic Beverages / Brewing / Wine

1  gallon  Boiling water
1  quart  Elder blossoms
3  pounds  Sugar
1    Lemon, thinly sliced
1  tablespoon  Good yeast

Put blossoms in a large kettle and pour water over them. Let stand 1 hour. Strain, add sugar to liquid, boil a little and skim. When lukewarm, add lemon and yeast. Let stand 24 hours, then strain and put into bottles or jugs, filling full until al impurities are worked out. Be sure to fill up jugs as fast as it works out and the wine will be a beautiful amber color. (In making this wine, be careful to keep al stems out, as they make the wine taste rank and give it a dark color). Cork tightly. Many of the recipes in this collection did not contain amounts or oven temperatures. I have typed them in as they appear in the book, typos and all.
