I can relate to that...I lived in Michigan most of my life, I used to love picking the wild raspberries. Now I am in Southern Mississippi and the opportunities are endless when it comes to the produce I can grow. Pomegranates, blueberies, Goji berries, Passion fruit...etc. Husband was out mowing the lawn today and I was picking pea pods and carrots. Really thinking about some carrot wine...for medicinal purposes, of course!

Save those pea pods. Never tried it but its a well known wine in the UK. An old sit com used to joke about their pea pod burgundy. Usually resulting in drunken hijinks.

I had a friend tell me want to live in Amish country and that the Amish ferment everything and they'll get drunk and drive their horse and buggy down to Walmart and watch all the Walmart people

5 GALLONS:
20 pounds carrots sliced in food processor, 4 bananas and skins all boiled until carrots soft, drained, keep liquid
dissolve about 10 lb sugar in hot liquid
Cool
Add 5 can welches niagra
~20 tsp acid blend
Amylase
Pectinase
Nutrient
SG=1.11
Boost with sugar syrup when SG falls to 1.01
Ckear and bottle

Not a bad white wine, you loose all the carrot color so its just a normal white wine color. Easier to just make Welches Niagra by itself - the peach niagra turns out well if you add more cans of juice at the start.

Where did you pick up the syrup? Sounds like some favors that would go well with Berliner Weisse.

Now that sound interesting...I have some peach wine in the secondary, and when I put the peaches in the primary, I didn't want to use water, so I used white grape juice, on a whim...glad you posted this, I think I am on the right track.
