Ingredients:  
Ingredients:  
1 gallon fruit of choice (crushed)
1 gallon water
5 lb. sugar
1/8 tsp wine yeast or 3 tsp. reg yeast

Directions:
Directions:
Let yeast sit in warm water. Add all other ingredients into a container that will hold at least 2 gallons. Make sure sugar is dissolved completely. Add yeast and stir. Cover container with a bag and string or use an airlock for wine making.

In about 2 months you will have some fine homemade wine.

Strain off fruits and filter sediments after fruit fermentation has stopped. You will notice that the fruit will drop to the bottom of the pail. You may have to repeat the filtering process several times to get a clear wine especially if you don't use wine yeast.

VERY IMPORTANT: You can taste the green wine, but let it sit and age about 2-3 weeks before completely indulging. It may cause an upset stomach if drank too soon.
