"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

Personal Notes:
This is a recipe easily adapted to other flavors, fruits and nuts. If using fresh fruit, it is best to coat the fruit with some of the flour and add near the end to avoid crushing the fruit. Optional use of tsp extract such as vanilla or almond.
