Default Wine From Dried Fruits

I have been reading as much as I can and wanted to ask everyone here. What is some of the best / easiest wine you have made from dried fruit? I have seen recipes for dried apricots, dried elderberries and even just plain raisins. I want to try something but wanted input from everyone here. Maybe some recipes and suggestions.

Dried fruits are expensive unless you make your own. Use dried fruits with the same kind of 100% juice in the grocery. Best of 2 worlds that way.

Also you can buy jam in the grocery. I have made wine from Blackberry jam that was awesome. Think outside of the box.

Dried cranberry, no oil added ones, along with white grape juice as the base, or even red grape as the base is great.

We have to vote for dried elderberries as one of the easiest and best. WVMJ

Dried elderberry, the fresh tastes alittle different, but it tastes like the best wine ever If you add enough dried berries, a good red wine yeast and some nutrients its not hard to make. Some pics and recipies on our edlerbrry website. WVMJ
