"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Note from Jeannine & Joe: John Corn made this for us during the time he was helping repair our home in the mountains (10/05). It was so wonderful that we encouraged him to let us add it to the cookbook. Make it! You won't regret it!
