Walnut Leaf wine

Believe it or not you can make wine from walnut leaves and we have a walnut tree in the garden.

You have to pick the leaves while they are young when they are quite fragrant.

after processing with oranges and yeast, the resulting liquid is now in the demijohn to ferment.

There’s lots to learn about wine making but I’ve found a brew shop in Norwich where I can get all the help I need!

Dandelion Wine

At last I have got around to racking off my dandelion wine I started last summer. It’s very over due and soon it will be time to bottle it. I’ve syphoned it into another demijhon and it looks and tastes like it should be a good wine.

I think I’ll bottle it in two or three months time, which doesn’t mean that’s when we can drink it though!
